Senegal is a very dynamic country on the international scene. It has been entrusted with various responsibilities within ECOWAS, the Organization of the Islamic Conference as well as within The International Organization of La Francophonie ... and most recently, the UN Security Council.
The duties it performs for the African Union through NEPAD (New Partnership for the Economic Development of Africa) have led it to represent the continent in various EU-Africa, China-Africa or India-Africa Summits, as well as at the G7 and G20 summits.
In addition, President Macky Sall is actively engaged in ensuring the stability of the West-African sub-region (in Mali, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau and elsewhere).
In 2015, Senegal was elected as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for a two-year term.
