Gambian President Adama Barrow hailed China’s contribution to his country’s development in his annual State of Nation Address on Thursday.
“Under the framework of FOCAC (Forum on China-Africa Cooperation), the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of The Gambia signed, in June 2020, an agreement on economic and technical cooperation.
In addition, the Chinese government provided a grant of 300 million yuan (about 46 million U.S. dollars) for the National Transmission and Distribution Project. This is a top priority for my administration,” President Barrow said.
He also hailed the Chinese government for financing and constructing a 250-meter bridge and a 170-meter bridge in Basse and Fatoto respectively, adding that both of the projects have been completed. Enditem
