Government will be responsible for the development of tourism policy by identifying products attractive to tourists and other visitors, diversify the services to benefit all parts of the country and work with various stakeholders to provide the support necessary to make the attractions accessible. Public enterprises will divest from hotels and leave the sector to investors who have comparative capacity to develop the sector which relies mainly on foreign visitors.
Government will require foreign investors to provide shares to Gambian partners.
Government will instead seek to enhance the multiplier effect of the sector on the productive base of the economy, through consumption of Gambian goods and services by foreign guests who may number hundreds of thousands because the now exists a democratic system of government, the openness of society and compliance with global food safety standards.
Investment on land belonging to families to provide ecotourism and other services will be rendered by giving fair shares to families.
