He told journalists yesterday at the Banjul International Airport upon arrival from the Kingdom of Qatar: “I have strategic projects one of which is Vision 2016 which I want to make sure that by 2016, what I said is going to happen by the grace of the Almighty Allah. Of course, also the airport we need to…we have only one airport and if we have a problem here, planes will not land in The Gambia. That is not safe and it is like putting all your eggs in one basket. There are other strategic projects that I don’t want to talk about but agriculture, Vision 2016, the development of the airport and a second international airport are some of the strategic projects that we discussed.”
