The World Bank, European Union and the African Development Bank will provide a $40 million grant to the Gambia’s 2023 budget.
Total Revenue and Grants for 2023 of the country is projected to reach 31.48 billion Dalasi ($201 million) which represents a growth of 18.42 per cent over the 2022 figure of D26.59 billion.
The increase is mainly attributed to an estimated increase in tax revenue, budget support grants, and Non-Tax Revenue.
Meanwhile, the budget is largely spent on priority areas such as education and health.
