Within the framework of the Senegal Emergent Plan (Plan Sénégal Émergent-PSE), the Ministry of Communications of Senegal has adopted a policy to stimulate the development of the ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) sector. The national ICT strategy aims to promote the creation of an attractive space for investment, as well as access to ICTs for the society in general.

With this in mind, the Government is promoting the construction of the Digital City project, an urban hub in which digital services are the main driving force for economic growth. This new hub, 35 km from Dakar and close to the new international airport (AIDB), aims to place the digital economy at the heart of the new administrative and business city of Diamniadio.

The total investment is 70 million euros, of which 61 million is financed by the African Development Bank and 9 million from the Government of Senegal. The objective is to create a digital platform in an area of 25 Ha in the Diamniadio economic zone, with ICT office spaces for the public and private sector, including international companies. The first phase includes the design and construction of 33,000 m2 of offices, incubators, teaching and research centres and a Tier III data centre integrated into the area.
