The European Union (EU) and its Member States provide by far the largest part of international development assistance worldwide. However, the EU is much more than just that: the EU is a global actor and as such wishes to promote a comprehensive partnership with The Gambia. This means a mature, respectful and mutually benefiting relationship that goes beyond mere traditional development assistance.
