The trade fair for young women and men in The Gambia’s agricultural and tourism sector is an important stage and networking venue. The Gambian-German Advisory Centre supported entrepreneurs with their presentation.
More than 350 young entrepreneurs presented their services and products at the latest trade fair in The Gambia organised by the Gambia Youth Chamber of Commerce. 60 per cent of the participants were women. The trade fair took place in Sukuta in Western Gambia, which is the country’s tourist region. Hundreds of guests admired the jewellery, craft pieces, cosmetics and electronic products on display. They tasted various dishes and asked questions about services. The trade fair was more than just a marketplace. It offered an opportunity to make contact with national and international companies and to network with like-minded people.
