“Trade Policy Reviews” analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - “key trade facts” - provides a visual overview of the WTO member’s major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of The Gambia



Report by the Gambia

Since the last trade policy review of the Gambia in 2003, the Government of The Gambia successfully tackled the adverse impact of the 2002 drought and the subsequent drought of 2007. The economy achieved an average growth rate of 6.1% from 2006 to 2008 and is rebounding following the drought of 2007 and the subsequent effects of the global financial and economic crisis. The performance of the economy improved further in 2009 due partly to strong growth in agriculture, largely because of good rains.
