The parliament of The Gambia and that of Sierra Leone have held a discussion that could culminate into the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) – to cover different areas of mutual interests.

A report presented to the Parliament in Banjul on Wednesday, stated that the discussion was held during a study visit by a delegation from The Gambia’s Parliament to their counterparts in Freetown, Sierra Leone from March 18-21.
Presenting the report on behalf of the delegation in Banjul, Abdoulie Kanaji Jawla, said the signing of the MoU will give the two parliaments the opportunity to further strengthen the already existing bilateral relationship between the two countries.

According to the report, the chairman of the Sierra Leone Parliament Health Select Committee, Claude Kamanda, has noted that in order to further strengthen the bilateral cooperation between Banjul and Freetown, the signing of an MoU is very pertinent.

The Gambian delegation was on a study visit to Freetown to avail them the opportunity to exchange best practices in use of research evidence in policy review and monitoring implementation of policies and strategies in combating challenges in public health.

“The trip helped aroused a lot of interest in the use of evidence in Parliamentary deliberations especially in a commonwealth country that has the same parliamentary procedures as The Gambia,” Jawla said.

He explained that the main lesson learnt during the visit is that Members of Parliament need supportive evidence for effective deliberation at Parliament.
