Speaking at the opening ceremony, Chargé d’Affaires, a.i.

He called on all present to protect the untold numbers of lives around the world and in The Gambia, especially the most vulnerable women and children, affected by TIP. The Chargé thanked the NAATIP and UNODC for collaborating with the U.S. Department of State to make this training a success. The opening ceremony was attended by the NAATIP Director, Ramatoulie Jawara Ceesay, officials from the government and the diplomatic corps.
