A partnership has been formed between the UK Embassy in Gambia and the Gambian Chamber of Commerce (GCCI). This partnership will provide the GCCI with funds to hold a number of business forums to inform Gambian business operators and policy makers on new initiatives and policies.

It is envisaged these forums should help improve business standards and the quality of products and service delivery offered by local businesses.The forums will give an opportunity to discuss areas such as ‘Public/Private Partnerships’, ‘Intellectual Property Rights’, and ‘Developing Policies to Encourage Foreign Direct Investment’.

George Sherriff, UK Deputy Ambassador says, “I am delighted we are able to support the GCCI with funding to be able to hold these seminars which I hope will be of interest and use to the local business community. The funding provided has come from the UK’s ‘Prosperity’ agenda which promotes sustainable global economic growth and works to create a transparent and strong rules based international economic system. The UK Embassy is committed to helping the GCCI strengthen the local investment climate and create greater enterprise and business innovation in The Gambia.”
