GYCC with Partners Launches First-Ever National Tobaski Wanterr Trade Fair

The Gambia Youth Chamber of Commerce (GYCC), Gambia Market Union (GMU), and Gam United Breeders Association (GUBA) came together to launch the National Tobaski Wanterr Trade Fair. The launching event took place at the GCCI Kerr Jula office in Bijilo on Thursday, May 9th, 2024.

The primary objective of the trade fair is to create a favorable environment for all thriving businesses in the country. One of the key aims is to provide suitable selling spaces for those who sell outside designated market areas during feasts.

The event’s theme, “Sustainable growth in challenging times: supporting micro, small, and medium enterprises, a Gambian perspective,” highlighted the importance of fostering a resilient and inclusive business landscape.

Theresa S. Diarra, Director of Operation and Membership at GCCI, expressed the organization’s commitment to supporting economic growth and development in the Gambia. As the private sector’s umbrella body, GCCI will continue to lend its support to events that showcase entrepreneurial skills and innovation within the community.

Neneh Gulo Bah, Senior Vice President of GYCC, emphasized the significance of the Wanterr Trade Fair. She highlighted its potential to accelerate development outcomes and stressed the need for collaboration between private sector contributors, market unions, government entities, local authorities, and partners to achieve sustainable development goals.

Market Union Secretary, Bolong emphasized that this initiative is a pilot initiative that was brought up due of the huge amount of people that would storm market streets just to conduct wanterr which he believes makes it hard for people to access the markets  hence he urges every Gambian to go to the GCCI grounds in order to make their sales.

He further urged the Police to clear the road corridors off anyone who wants to make wanterr sales there so that the place which is allocated for wanterr at the GCCI trade fair grounds would be occupied.

The Tobaski Wanterr Trade Fair which will be held at the GCCI trade fair grounds from June 1st to June 16th is open to all local businesses.
