The project of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture through the Gambia Tourism Board (GTBoard) to revive and revamp tourism in Juffureh and Albreda is in high gear, officials said.

A delegation, led by the tourism minister and consisting of other senior officials from the ministry, GTBoard, and the National Centre for Arts and Culture, recently visited the places to have firsthand information as to the state of affairs.

After a conducted tour of the facilities in Juffureh and Albreda by the delegation, Ousman Kebbeh of the GTBoard, who is in charge of the revamping project, said that upon completion, the project would bring “holistic tourism development to the doorstep of Juffureh and Albreda”.

He said some components of the project like the development of an information centre would finish latest May 2016.

“I hope at the end of this project, not only the people of Juffureh but also visitors would feel that there is a holistic revamp in terms of development of tourism in the area,” Mr Kebbeh said.
