The presentation of IT equipment by the Gambia Telecommunications Company Limited recently to the Gambia Embassy in Guinea Bissau is indeed a good gesture.
This will go a long way in addressing the needs of the embassy in the area of communication between them and the authorities back home in the country.
We are to understand that our foreign embassies are equally important to the development of the country, because they strengthen diplomatic ties between us and the rest of the world.
It is high time that companies also start edto assist them whenever they make requests for their felt needs. This is the only way their problems can be solved.
People have to understand that the government cannot do it alone. So individuals and companies should complement their efforts in other areas of development.
Gamtel should be commended for their contribution towards all national development endeavours.
Foreign embassies play a very important role in the socio-political development of any nation.
