This is comprised of hoteliers, travel businesses and entertainment.  The Gambia Tourist Board is also responsible for advising the tourism sector and it offers a one-stop-shop service; the authority is aggressively marketing and promoting foreign & local investment in the tourism industry. They also work in co-operation with their European partners to develop sustainable tourism products and services in Africa.

As part of the authoritative order of the authority the setting up of quality control systems, investment, standards,  and security feature as important functions in the day-to-day activities of the tourism body.

The sort of tourists that that the country attracts is to a large degree influenced by the way in which the country develops and showcases the the Smiling Coast as a tourism destination.
