MPAU is the center of research within the Ministry. The unit undertakes cutting-edge research in Economics particularly the economic structure of the Gambia.

One of the primary functions is to offer technical and policy advice to  the Permanent Secretary and Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs on Macroeconomic issues.

Econometric models are currently utilized to forecast key economic variables and monitoring of the macro economy. As a result, the unit works closely with other government institutions such as the Central Bank and Policy Analysis Unit in the formation and evaluation of policies.
