An International Monetary Fund (IMF) team has concluded a visit to The Gambia from February 16-22, 2017, where discussions with the new government, which came into office in early 2017, were held.
The IMF team was led by Mr Ulrich Jacoby, who expressed his gratitude to the Gambian authorities for their “openness, cooperation and hospitality.”
According to the team, “Discussions centred around economic developments and the economic outlook for The Gambia, economic challenges, and the government’s policies and reform priorities going forward.”
It was also noted that “discussions will be held during a visit planned for early spring 2017 to hold discussions on the Article IV consultation, which has been delayed from last year, and possible forms of IMF support.”
According to Mr Jacoby, “The mission met with President Adama Barrow, Minister of Finance Amadou Sanneh, Central Bank Governor Amadou Colley, other government officials, development partners, and the private sector.”
