Senegal, Spain seal deal

afrol News, 16 November - At least 2,700 Senegalese youths are waiting to grab work permits in Spain. This followed the sealing of an agreement by governments of both countries.

Signed by the Senegalese Interior Minister [Ousman Ngom] and the Spanish Labour Minister [Jesus Caldera] in the Senegalese capital Dakar last week, the deal seeks to discourage the illegal and perilous sea migration to enter Spain’s Canary Islands.

Under the agreement, 2,000 youths will undergo Spanish funded training in Senegal before they get employed by Spanish fishing boats next year. The rest of the youths will be fitted in agricultural farming.

Thousands of West African youths, particularly Senegalese have perished at sea in a journey of no return. The youths embark on the journey in search of greener pastures.

Despite the risks involved and strict patrol and border controls by both Spain and some African countries, the practice still exists. Just last week, 58 Gambian youths set for the sea journey drowned after their wooden patchy boat was engulfed in a fire.
