Risk Advisory is pleased to invite corporate security professionals to a flash briefing on The Gambia and West Africa on 27 January.

The Gambia has its first new president in 22 years, after ECOWAS forced Yahya Jammeh into standing down on Saturday. A new government led by President Adama Barrow has pledged to reform The Gambia’s political system and restore its relations with neighbouring countries. This will potentially bring new opportunities for businesses in one of Africa’s fastest growing and most stable regions.

In light of these developments, you are invited to a special briefing and roundtable discussion on The Gambia and West Africa this Friday 27 January. You can join us in person or online.

Our Sub-Saharan Africa analysts will discuss what the change in leadership in The Gambia means for political stability and risk there. We will look at the wider implications for neighbouring Senegal and the separatist insurgency in Senegal’s southern Casamance region. We will also discuss whether the removal of Jammeh will strengthen regional integration efforts and the formation of an ECOWAS single market.

This will include a brief from a member of our Intelligence & Analysis team who will have just returned from a deployment in The Gambia, as part of our provision of on the ground intelligence to our Security Intelligence & Analysis Service (SIAS) clients.

The event will be held at Risk Advisory’s offices in London and streamed live on a webinar for those who are unable to attend in person. Places are limited so please register your interest below as soon as possible.
