By Maimuna Sey Jawo The Gambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Wednesday launched the 11th edition of the Trade Fair Gambia International TFGI, which is scheduled to take place from April 15th to 30th 2017 at Independence Stadium in Bakau. The launching ceremony was held at the GCCI head quarter in Bigelo in Kerr Jula. In his statement, the president of the GCCI, Muhammed Jagana, recounted the successes over the last five decades. “This success has been attributed to partnership it has built and continue to build primarily with Government and various businesses and organisations locally and abroad over the 50 years. “GCCI is expected to play its role in more dynamic and efficient way in this changing economic environment, through creating and seeking strategic partnerships for the benefit of the business community,” he said. He added that high on the Chamber’s agenda for 2017 is the rebuilding the Gambia economy. “Whether you are a business owner or an organization, we wish to encourage you to be open to more opportunities to create or join in partnership with GCCI as we continue to work together to build a strong economy through inclusive growth. “GCCI believes that competitive and environmentally sustainable industries and enterprise have a crucial role to play in accelerating economic growth, creating employment and reducing poverty in the Gambia. ”As we provide the necessary linkages that pitch industries and enterprise in the desired business networks, opportunities are derived and we are gradually moving into the era of ‘entrepreneur development’ therefore, GCCI seeks to encourage job creators rather than job seekers.” He said they have started consultation with our members and the entire business community and will continue the dialogue until there are representatives. In his launching statement, Mr. Bajara Jabbie Board of Director GCCI, said trade fair presents an opportunity for businesses and industry innovators to showcase their products and services and gain access to both domestic and international markets. “With majority of export coming from the agribusiness sector, the whole value chain must be exposed and understood.”]]>
