Gambia: 2019 intra-Africa trade and tariff profile
The Gambia mainly exports goods to other African countries, but sources goods mainly from global trade partners. Also, between 2018 and 2019 intra-African exports more than doubled while intra-Africa imports halved. The increase in exports were driven by a US$11 million increase in exports of petroleum oils and US$1.2 million increase in exports of vegetable fats and oils. Most of Gambia’s intra-Africa trade is with countries which are also members of ECOWAS. Outside ECOWAS exports are mainly fish flour exported to Tunisia and drilling machines exported to Mauritania. Imports are mainly Portland cement sourced from Algeria at the ECOWAS CET rate of 20 per cent.
