In a statement from the prime ministry's press office, Yildirim and Sall stressed that they are eager to enhance already existing good relations between the two countries.
The statement said that the leaders evaluated bilateral relations while pointing out significant projects in Senegal such as Dakar conference center, which were completed by Turkish firms.
The Abdou Diouf de Diamniado International Conference Center was the largest Turkish investment officially completed in Senegal. Turkey provided €48.5 million ($57.23 million) to finance it.
Dakar's new Blaise Diagne International Airport constructed by Turkish companies Summa and Limak also opened last week.
According to the Ministry of Economy, the bilateral trade between Turkey and Senegal reached $160 million in 2016, while Turkey's imports from Senegal rose to $6.1 million in the same year.
Yildirim also thanked Senegal president for his quick response to shut down the schools linked to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind last year’s defeated coup in Turkey.
