About us - structure and organisation

The Delegation of the European Union to The Gambia is part of the European Union External Service, and is one of the more than 130 Delegations throughout the world.

The Delegation acts as the interface between the European institutions and the Government of The Gambia and its population. Over the years, the role of the Delegation has evolved to cover a wide range of issues.

The Delegation's mandate includes the following:

  • To actively promote the values and policies of the European Union, in an open and equal partnership with the Government and people of The Gambia;
  • To deepen the political dialogue on all issues of mutual interest and to strengthen the partnership;
  • To play a key role in implementing the EU's development cooperation activities. In The Gambia, these cover a range of target areas such as infrastructure, governance, food security and rural development;
  • To inform The Gambia about the policies and programmes of the European Union, as well as its institutions and values.
H.E Attila Lajos, EU Ambassador to The Republic of The Gambia

I warmly welcome you to the website of the European Union Delegation to The Gambia.

I am honoured to be the first EU resident Ambassador to The Gambia, and I hope to enhance the long-standing bilateral cooperation between the EU and The Gambia during my tenure.

The European Union provides key development support in areas such as agriculture, education and infrastructure which have enhanced the socio-economic development of this West African nation.

Together with my colleagues at the delegation I am committed to enriching and deepening our strong partnership with the Government of The Gambia and the Gambian people in the years to come.

I hope that you will find this website of interest. If you would like to stay up-to-date with what the EU is doing in The Gambia you may also like to visit our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter (@EUinTheGambia)

Attila Lajos
