The Gambia is blessed with a long and glorious tradition of trade. It is strategically situated at the African end of the Atlantic Trade Triangle, a trade route dating back centuries between Africa, Europe and America. It is the nearest harbour on the African continent to the two overseas markets and its geographical features make it a natural gateway into Africa.
Today, in the face of globalisation, Gambia is a cocktail of geographical advantages, socio-political stability, a governance orientation committed to free enterprise and liberal market principles, membership of major international and regional trade and economic organisations and the hospitable reliability of Gambians that dovetails perfectly into making The Gambia an excellent marketing and investment springboard for the 270-million-strong West African market. The country is constitutionally obliged to encourage, promote and protect beneficial investment as the enabler of socio-economic change and progress.
The time has never been better for doing business in The Gambia with the Vision 2020 declared by the Gambian government. The fundamental aim and aspiration of the Vision 2020 is to transform The Gambia into a trading, export-oriented agricultural and manufacturing nation, which thrives on free market policies and a vibrant private sector.
