Gambian MPs receive training in Budget Analysis and Financial Oversight

A delegation of Gambian MPs, led by the Speaker of Parliament, were in Accra, Ghana from October 12-16, 2015 to attend a course organized by ACEPA on Budget Analysis and Financial Oversight. The course, among other things, aimed at equipping MPs and staff with the requisite skills and tools to analyze national budgets, enhance their understanding of Public Financial Management and enhance their capacities to conduct oversight.

This is the second batch of Gambian MPs who have patronized courses offered by ACEPA in Accra. In June 2015, a four-member delegation including the Majority and Minority Leaders of Parliament and the Auditor General, took part in a similar training in Financial Oversight and Accountability.
