GAMBIAN BUSINESSES COLLAPSING

How to help them to divest from water packaging and invest in other sectors

The need for clean drinking water for conferences and ceremonies had mobilised young entrepreneurs to seek funds to purchase machines and huge stocks of plastic containers to provide water at prices affordable to many customers.

Government should investigate whether the association of producers of such bags of water used to number 80 and find out what the ban on the use of plastics had done to their businesses.

Government should not continue to promote industriousness and entrepreneurship among the young without establishing an institution to monitor and assist those affected by the ban.

Foroyaa will interview those affected to amplify their voices.
