ABIDJAN, April 14 Senegal is revising the basis
for calculating its gross domestic product and expects the
changes to show its economy is at least 30 percent larger than
currently believed, the West African nation's finance minister
said on Friday.
"We decided to revisit the basis of our GDP which has been
evaluated on the basis of 1999. Since then however, the economic
dynamics have changed a lot," Amadou Ba told reporters on the
sidelines of a conference in Ivory Coast.
He added that he hoped Senegal would see GDP growth above 7
percent from next year.
