Business Park in Gambia
Development and Management of Free Zone & Business Park Opportunity: The Government of The Gambia has commissioned Phase 1 for the development of a 160 hectare Industrial & Business Park at Banjul Airport.

The Gambia Investment and Export Promotion Agency (GIEPA) has been mandated by the Government to appoint a company that will be responsible for the development and management of the Park under lease concession from GIEPA. The Developer/Manager will jointly promote the Park with the assistance of GIEPA both nationally and internationally as a location for new industry/business development.

An attractive package of incentives has been assembled by GIEPA for potential investors at the Business Park.

The first phase development of the July 22nd Business Park of 20ha of which 8.8 ha is completed contains two pre built international standard factory units, each 1000 m2 in area, together with its own energy centre, workshops, independent water treatment plant, solid waste and effluent sewerage treatment plants, telecommunications network, and first class access roads.

Investment Climate:
The Gambia is fast becoming a first choice location for new investment. The political and socio-economic stability in the country is unique to the sub-region. Together with the investment incentives, the streamlined business procedures, and a Government committed to public/private sector partnerships, the international image of The Gambia as an investment location has never been more positive.

The labour force is young, active, flexible and relatively inexpensive. The Government’s strategy for education embraces both academic and vocational skills development thus ensuring a future strong skills base.

The strategic location of The Gambia on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, offers convenient access to the US, EU and to the rest of Africa.

GIEPA has already got a ‘healthy’ pipeline of eligible investment projects for the Park and is confident that together with a suitably experienced partner, the “July 22ND Business Park” at the Banjul International Airport will prove to be a major catalyst in the economic development of The Gambia.

The Gambia has publicly stated that the private sector will be “the engine of national development” and that private capital should play an important role in the economy.
