Last week the WACS Executive members visited the Gambia and had a series of meetings, beginning with the LOC members. This was to review the preparedness of the host team and to meet important dignitaries and other stakeholders concerned with the upcoming outreach and conference. The visitors were pleased with the work done so far in the Gambia and important targets and deadlines were set. At the pinnacle of their visit was their encounter with His Excellency President Adama Barrow, who offered his full support for the upcoming event. The Central Bank’s Director General No. 1 was very receptive and promised to offer support. We look forward to a successful event next year!
