    Background: The Government of Mali and Gambia have agreed to establish a joint commission to encourage co-operation between the two countries. The commission will promote economic, technical, scientific and cultural links.

    This was announced in Bamako, the Mali capital, on Friday (10 January) as the Gambian President Sir Dawda Jawara prepared to leave after a five-day official visit.

    A joint communique, issued by President Jawara and President Moussa Traore of Mali, also stated that the two heads of State had completed a wide-ranging exchange of views on both bilateral and international issues.

    The Gambian President headed a 13-member delegation, which arrived in Bamako on Monday (6 January). Others in the official party included Foreign Minister Alieu N'Jie and Health, Labour and Social Services Minister Kalilu Singhateh.

    On Tuesday the two Presidents travelled to Segou, 150 miles (240 km) from the capital to visit the Mali Textile Company's plant. Later, President Jawara inspected the Doughabougou Sugar Refinery and the Markala Dam.
