About Gambia

Conducting market research in the Gambia provides you and your firm a set of unique opportunities. Located in West Africa, Gambia is surrounded by Senegal, but holds a small coast on the Atlantic Ocean, where its capital, Banjul, can be found. Gambia is a small country, it is the smallest African country on the mainland. The country has suffered greatly in the last decades due to droughts and economic mismanagement. However, it cultivates a rich history of trade dating 10 centuries, in great part thanks to its geographical location. 

Why conduct market research

Agriculture makes up the Gambia’s largest industry. Cultivation of nuts for both local consumption and export, primarily peanuts, is notable. Tourism is also an attractive sector, in part thanks to its coast and beautiful beaches. The country is also rich in wildlife and nature, with attractions along the Gambia river, after which the country is named. Banjul, the capital, is the densest city in the country, but only the 4th most populated. It is however the center for peanut and food production, in addition to tourism. The largest city, however, is Serekunda, an agglomeration of nine villages, making up a larger united urban community.
