The Gambia Tourism Board, GTBoard, Director-General, Mr. Benjamin Roberts, has advised Nigerians planning to travel to The Gambia as tourists or for business, to take advantage of a range of incentives offered by the Gambian government to make their stay in the country a pleasurable and memorable.
Receiving a group of Nigerian journalists on a familiarisation tour of The Gambia, Mr. Roberts said the country, easily the region’s biggest holiday destination, offers a lot of attractions for Nigerians for holiday and a conducive business environment.
The Director stressed the open-door investment policies and modern facilities in The Gambia as some of the valuable support Nigerian investors will need to boost their business in The Gambia.
He added that while Nigeria and The Gambia currently enjoy excellent bilateral relations, this, to a large extent, is yet to reflect in the level of interaction between the people of both countries.
Roberts said: “GTB is taking the initiative to bring our peoples together. Nigerians will find The Gambia a fascinating country to visit in terms of its tourism attractions and as a suitable environment for business.”
Also addressing the visitors, the GTBoard Director of Marketing, Mr. Adama Njie, disclosed that The Gambia has emerged as a leading tourist destination, attracting a large number of visitors from Europe and other continents to its exotic locations.
He also urged Nigerian investors to take advantage of the country’s liberal investment policies.
