GCCI to stage mini-trade fair for youth entrepreneurs in Brikama

The Gambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry is set to stage the second edition of its mini-trade fair, ‘Marche Jula’, from 11 to 20 October this year in Brikama to promote youth entrepreneurs and enterprises, after interacting with young enterprising men and women in the country over the months.

Almami Taal, GCCI CEO
To be held on the theme “Promoting Sustainable Youth Enterprises and Self Employment”, the aims of the event, first staged in 2011, include exposing youth enterprises, promoting self-employment, increasing sales for youth enterprises and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), showcasing innovations in science and technology, and complementing Trade Fair Gambia (TFG), held every two years.

An impeccable source close to this paper has said the target businesses are youth enterprises, MSMEs, science and technology innovations, and self-employment initiatives in agriculture, arts and craft, construction, electrical and electronics, fashion, food and beverages, furniture, renewable energy, tailoring and other undertakings. 

This year’s Marche Jula will provide a platform for young people to showcase their skills, talents and innovation, particularly in science and technology, thereby giving them more business opportunities and market power.  

The event will create linkages and connect young men and women to meaningful business development opportunities which would result in viable enterprises that can eventually evolve into successful partnership ventures.

Interested participants are urged to collect application forms from GCCI Secretariat at Kerr Jula located on Bertil Harding Highway. 

The deadline for submission of forms is 15 September 2012. Forms must be accompanied with cash or cheque payments to the GCCI.

The primary functions of the GCCI are provision of essential business services to the private sector in general and its members, in particular, as well as giving business advice and influencing government in creating an environment conducive for business to thrive in the country.

The GCCI also plays a key role in expanding international trade activities and promoting growth. It as well brings together a wide range of business interests into close and regular contact with government departments.
