Signature of a Collaboration Agreement between SCA and FOMECC/PECCS

On 5 July, the FOMECC Senegal project (PECCS) signed a partnership agreement with that country's Permanent Secretariat for the Guidance and Monitoring of Accelerated Growth Strategy (SCA), reinforcing PECCS' aim of cooperating with local programmes in the area of culture and development. Senegal's DPES 2010-2015, the framework for national economic and social development, identifies the cultural industries, alongside tourism and arts crafts, as one area with substantial development potential. The action plan in the TICAA field (Tourism, Cultural Industries and Arts Crafts) includes proposals aimed at reinforcing the capacities of professionals in these sectors. Thus FOMECC Senegal and SCA have agreed to strengthen their collaboration in order to foster cultural and creative entrepreneurship.
