A brief look at Senegambia


Abdou Diouf who was the second president of Senegal from 1981 to 2000 oversaw the creation of Senegambia. Senegal joined with The Gambia to form the nominal confederation of Senegambia in 1982. The envisaged integration of the two countries was never implemented. The Gambia’s growing concern over its autonomy partly led to the dissolution of the confederation in 1989. The Gambia is geographically almost completely surrounded by Senegal except on one side of this tiny African area. Trade between Senegal and The Gambia is exponentially increased with the building of the 1.9km or 1.2-mile Senegambia Bridge near Farafenni that links the two halves of The Gambia, as well as allowing people from the north of Senegal to reach the southern Senegalese province of Casamance with ease.
