Senegal's privatisation test

Issue 8 - 01 Nov 1998

It is envisaged that around 10 per cent of the restructured Senelec's capital will be allocated to its workers and around 8 per cent to the public, while the state will keep hold of a maximum 41 per cent. The necessary legislation has been put in place (Law 98-06) and Paribas, a leading international bank, appointed to oversee the operation.
