The theme of the Senegal pavilion is traditional fishing and agriculture and the country's role as an ambassador of African art.

The pavilion's characteristic blue and white façade symbolises Senegal's importance as a coastal fishing centre in West Africa. At the entrance to the pavilion are brightly coloured offshore fishing canoes.

The Senegalese village on display inside offers, in addition to the traditional architecture, an insight into the means of transport and communication and the excellent agricultural and industrial potential of this country.

The pavilion gives a picture of modern Senegal, its railway network and the port of Dakar.

The pavilion also provides an overview of the possibilities in the fields of shipping, transit and freight transport.

The pavilion shows the important role Senegal plays in the development of artistic awareness.
