Last year, Dubai’s port operator, DP World, announced plans to develop a logistics-free zone in Senegal. The free zone will be built near the Blaise Diagne International Airport on the outskirts of Dakar. While many are excited about what this development could do to boost Senegal’s economy and trade opportunities, it will also provide enormous potential for growth in the construction industry.
The DP World logistics-free zone is a large-scale project that will entail a great deal of construction over a long period, which will benefit both construction companies and skilled workers in this industry. If you are a construction worker, now is the time to invest in your future with technician training that adds value to your skill set and increases your chance of being employed.
