HONORABLE MINISTER, PERMANENT SECRETARY AND STAFFS AT INTERNATIONAL WORKERS/LABOUR DAY CELEBRATION 2017
Admin1

Labour Day is an annual holiday celebrated all over the world that resulted from the labour union movement, to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers. The majority of countries celebrate Labour Day on May 1, every year. This day is popularly known as May Day and International Workers' Day. The celebration of Labour Day has its origins in the Eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. The day also commemorates the “International Worker’s Day” which has a historic significance. It is also a day of political protests. May Day is otherwise observed as a saint's feast day or a day for organized labor. In many countries, it is a public holiday. In most of the countries including India, May Day is also celebrated as Labour Day. The day originates with the US labour movement in the late 19th century. The history of the movement dates back to May 1, 1886. On this day several labour unions across the US go on strike to achieve their genuine demands from their employers. Labour Day is celebrated on May 1 in many countries around the world and it is still often a day for protests and rallies. On this day, various labour organizations across the country carry out processions and organize competitions for children belonging to labour class. However, in recent years, the celebration of this day has taken a new turn, where the workers and trade unions demand to safeguard their interests and give the economic reforms a humane face. 

In the Gambia the event marked with a march pass and speeches from trade union and Ministry of Trade, Industry, Regional Integration and Employment and then followed by althletic competitions and other sporting games.

The floor was then passed on to the Team Leader of the GAFCSC delegation who stated that their visit to the Ministry is part of the college’s mandate to take students on research trips to various African countries. The theme for this year, he stated, is “emerging case studies in Africa” with emphasis on the security challenges and lessons learned from The Gambia as a case study. He also noted that one of the takeaways of this meeting would be to learn about how socio-economic issues feed into the security challenges as far as trade, industry, regional integration and employment are concerned.
The team leader initiated the discussions by giving the floor to Mr. Ousman Bojang, Principal Trade Economist, to give a presentation on the socio-economic aspects of The Gambia within the context of trade, regional integration, industries and employment. In his presentation, Mr. Bojang, gave an overview of the trade and investment environment of The Gambia, detailed the current regional integration activities being implemented, and highlighted the strides being made towards addressing employment issues in the Gambia. Mr. Bojang concluded his presentation by outlining some of the challenges faced in the Gambia as far as MOTIE is concerned. These include:
 Limited aid for trade resources to implement trade related projects
 The Gambia’s limited technical capacity to negotiate multilateral trade agreements
 The sustainability of the fiscal incentives given by GIEPA to investors
 Access to reliable data on employmen
