Trade Missions


The Gambia Investment and Export Promotion Agency (GIEPA) in pursuit of its mandate of promoting and attracting foreign direct investment embarked on an outreach trade and investment mission to Turkey from the 2nd to 6th June 2014. The mission was led by the Honorable Minister of Trade, Industry, Regional Integration and Employment and attended by stakeholders in both the public and private sector.

Regional Trade Agreements

The Gambia is a member of the World Trade Organization and ECOWAS and has Bilateral Cooperation with a number of its trading partners. The Gambia therefore benefits from non-reciprocal duty-free preferential treatment from many industrialized countries under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), and related schemes like the European Union's Everything But Arms (EBA) Initiative. Other Developing Countries such as India, Korea, and Morocco also extend Duty-free and Quota-free or reduced-duty preferences to LDCs, including The Gambia.
