Gambia Standards Bureau on Tuesday organised a daylong seminar to validate the
National Quality Policy and its Action Matrix and Action Plan.
The forum, held at Khamsys conference centre in Bijilo, was organised under the auspices of West Africa Quality System Programme and attended by various stakeholders.
Papa Secka, director general of Gambia Standards Bureau, said the validation was to align the quality policy of The Gambia with the Ecowas Quality Policy and to ultimately put in place a 5-year costed implementation plan that can be used as a tool for mobilisation of funds for its implementation.
He said the forum would finalise the draft revised quality policy and implementation plan for The Gambia.
The West Africa Quality System Programe provides support to countries to have a national quality policy that is harmonised with the ECOWAS Quality Policy and incorporate it in an implementation matrix and costed action plan which can be submitted to donors for funding.
