Gambia: Enhancing Communication


Communication is very vital for the progress of any nation. This is not only because it has a crucial stake in the defence and security of a nation, but also helps in the making of informed policy actions as the status quo is easily updated with every given phenomenon.

The launching of ACE is therefore a giant step in that respect. Society can hardly develop if its communication system remains in shadow. Society needs to be informed for any meaningful socio-economic transformation can take place. ACE would undoubtedly go a long way in enhancing our endeavours for development particularly in materialising the crucial Vision 2020 dream.

The world has entered a digital age where communication and information technology is indispensable to sustainable growth. The advancement and sophistication of communication directly corresponds to our collective progress as a nation, very much so at a time that we are beginning the implementation of PAGE.

We therefore hope that our communication providers will use this opportunity to also endeavour to maximise efficiency and effectiveness so that their collective output can be embraced by the nation. The world is changing and it is time that the people change along with it.
