“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 WTO Secretariat

The Gambia is a small, least developed economy, with a very narrow economic base. The external sector is heavily dependent on re-exports, tourism, and remittances from overseas. Import and export procedures are relatively simple and efficient compared with many other developing countries. The first Trade Policy Review of The Gambia was held in 2004.
