Temporary import duties and outright bans on imports are periodically put in place especially on potatoes and onions to protect local producers.  These bans come into effect during harvesting periods; harvest times are not fixed but vary between February and August. The Gambia has occasionally also placed bans on poultry products.  Since 2018 the Government of The Gambia (GOTG) announced an import duty on flour of 47% applied on a benchmark price of $600 per Metric ton CIF and a GMD 1 per kilo tax on cement imports.
