President Adama Barrow has renewed his call on Gambians in the diaspora to return home and invest in the country.

The President made this call shortly after he opened the third edition of the TAF Gambia annual networking event at the Coral Beach Hotel. He praised Mustapha Njie, Chief Executive Officer of TAF for his courage to join the Nigerian big market.

Statistics have shown that the Gambian diaspora contribute a staggering 64 percent to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) through remittances. President Barrow said: “It has given me hope in the New Gambia. I have said before, Gambians in the diaspora are at liberty to return home. I have hope that we would succeed if we are together, like China did in 39 years. We have our strength; it was our togetherness that was why we defeated the dictator without a fight.”

“I have formally opened the third edition of the TAF Gambia annual networking event at the Coral Beach Hotel this morning. It is a great initiative by Mustapha Njie, Chief Executive Officer of TAF. He is a courageous man to join the big market in Nigeria. I had my doubts about how he could succeed but he has shown courage, confidence and dedication to succeed, despite coming from a small country, The Gambia,” he concluded.
