Summit Infrastructure

In preparation for this historic event, our government under the leadership of President Adama Barrow has earmarked a range of infrastructural developments aimed at ensuring a memorable experience for the delegate as well as improving the lives and livelihood of people in the country. The OIC projects – as they are widely known, constitute the single largest portfolio of infrastructural development projects in the historic of our country. The government’s philosophy from the one has been that hosting the Summit would be meaningless if it is not linked to the progress and prosperity of all Gambians.
