Secretary-General makes first official visit to The Gambia after it re-joined Commonwealth

The Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland, has become the first senior official to visit the country since The Gambia re-joined the Commonwealth family in February 2018. This visit is said to last for one week from the 5th December to the 11th December.

Ahead of her visit, the secretary general has said:

“The Gambia is a valued member of our family. Its government and people actively contribute to and benefit from the collective wisdom of our 54-member family, and a plethora of initiatives delivered by the Commonwealth organisations on a wide range of pressing issues for greater prosperity of all our citizens and communities.

“The visit will offer an opportunity to strengthen our collaboration and co-operation with The Gambia, better understand the concerns and priorities of a wide range of national leaders and representatives of the country, and to ensure their interests are reflected in the Commonwealth’s key programmes and global advocacy.

“Our overriding goal at the moment is our work to support small and vulnerable states, like The Gambia, as they tackle the cumulative impacts arising from the COVID-19 pandemic alongside ongoing threats such as climate change. This work is centered on building back better through cooperation and mutual support from among the Commonwealth’s 54 member countries.”

On Monday the 7th December, the secretary general had a meeting with the minister of foreign affairs Momodou Tangara and discussed about toolkits and programmes can support The Gambia’s development plan in creating a resilient economy which benefits everyone.
