The much talked about National Think- Tank will be launched this morning by President Adama Barrow at State House grounds in Banjul.
An official statement said yesterday that the Think-Tank Initiative is a translation of President Barrow’s vision to promote democratic and human rights approaches as well as collective national responsibility to redress the existing acute national brain drain to rebuild The “New Gambia”, through harnessing and maximizing the use of our increasing number of national expertise at all levels for sustainable development.

 
“The Think-Tank will work with a pool of multidisciplinary national consultants under the direct supervision of the Office of the Vice President, which is, de jure and de facto, responsible for coordinating the implementation of the National Development Agenda.
The initial work of the Think-Tank is to facilitate the formulation and national knowledge development processes of the National Development Plan (NDP), which will cover the period 2017-2019 and covered many areas,” the statement said.
