MoTIE Prepares Working Instruments for 2024

The Ministry of Trade, Industry, Regional Integration and Employment (MoTIE) recently concluded a three-day planning retreat to review the implementation of its 2023 Annual Work Plan, and to develop a consolidated plan for the Ministry and its satellite institutions for 2024.

Held at Kakuba Hotel in Kudang, Central River Region, the retreat afforded the Ministry the opportunity to prepare a programme-based budget in line with the Green Recovery Focused-National Development Plan, sector policies and the Ministry’s Medium Term Plan.

The forum attempted to align the Work Plan with the pillar on trade, private sector development, and employment creation in the Green Recovery Focused National Development Plan.

Addressing the meeting, Lamin Dampha, the Permanent Secretary at MoTIE, reminded the participants that this year is ‘year of delivery’; thus he urged the staff to work hard in order to achieve their goals. According to him, retreat is not only a working session but also a family reunion – “to know and appreciate each other better, which is very important when working together”.

He therefore underscored the need for consultation and collaboration throughout the forum. While speaking on resource mobilisation and the constraints, Mr Dampha urged the staff, institutions and agencies under the Ministry to not be limited by the scarce available resources, saying they must come together and mobilise resources. He thanked all for their active participation. The retreat was attended by senior management of MoTIE and personnel of its respective directorates and units, departments and agencies under the purview of the Ministry; namely, The Gambia Investment and Exports Promotion Agency (GIEPA), The Gambia Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (GCCPC), Weights and Measures Bureau (WMB), The Gambia Standards Bureau (TGSB) and Department of Labour.
