Senegal - Financial Advisor for Dakar-Diamniadio Regional Express Train (TER)

In order to relieve traffic congestion in Dakar and improve traffic flow between the capital and the rest of the country, the Government of Senegal (GoS) seeks to implement an effective transport system that goes through Dakar – Diamniadio – Thiès – Mbour. To this end, the GoS established the TER Dakar – Diamiadio – AIBD Airport Project and appointed the APIX (Agence nationale chargée de la Promotion des Investissement et des Grands Travaux) as lead agency to represent the GoS in the transaction. During the launching of construction work, the APIX must, on behalf of the GoS, develop economic and financial models for the project in order to assess the economic and financial viability of operations and prepare an appropriate project structure. As such, the GoS has contracted CPCS as a financial advisor to assist APIX in a series of economic and financial operations that will contribute to the identification, selection and contracting of a private operator.
