The newly appointed assistant Rotary District Governor 9101, Minyan Jobe, has disclosed that The Gambia will play host to the first ever Rotary District Conference in 2018-2019.
The high level conference is expected to bring together thousands of Rotarians from all over the world to The Gambia.
Assistant District Governor Jobe said the participants and delegates for the high level conference will mainly come from the 10 countries that constitute District 9101.
Other Rotarians from other districts around the world would be in attendance.
He said The Gambia will host the conference under supervision of the current District Governor-Elect, Rotarian Aki Allen, who is the chairman of the Gambia Electrical Company. Upon his confirmation at the conference, Rotarian Allen will be the first ever Gambian to become a Rotary District Governor supervising 10 countries.
Rotarian Jobe said the conference will bring a lot of business for hotels, tourist attraction centres, and other markets.
“The delegates are expected to visit many sites in the country, especially tourist attraction areas and this will boost the economy of the country,” he said, adding that arrangements are being made for the success of the high level conference, saying “at the moment, the ground is level”.
