An Africa-focused development think tank – Development Pathfinders, in collaboration with several co-sponsors, including the Metropolitan College of New York and the United African Congress is organizing an investment conference on Sierra Leone.

The event is scheduled to take place on September 27, 2018 at the Metropolitan College of New York, located on 60 West St, New York, NY 10006 from 05:00PM-09:00PM Eastern Standard Time.

The event will coincide with the visit of the newly elected president of Sierra Leone, His Excellency Julius Maada Bio to New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting.

The purpose of the event is to create a forum where President Bio and members of his government can showcase investment opportunities in Sierra Leone and his agenda for creating the right business climate.

The forum is intended to also attract U.S. based companies interested in investing in Sierra Leone, allowing them to meet Sierra Leone Government officials, learn about investment opportunities available in Sierra Leone, and help address any questions that potential investors may have. The attached flyers highlight the scope and objectives of the event.

In addition to the benefits outlined above, attendees will have the opportunity to interact with President Bio and key members of his cabinet, as well as network with other business leaders who will be in attendance.

  1. Why isn’t the discussion about Sierra Leonean investors investing in Sierra Leone? It is important for us to own our own businesses. In America, Americans own their own industries and means of production/manufacturing. Why does Africa always want foreign investors?

    The amount of money those of us abroad (Diaspora Africans) send to our relatives is about $40 Billion Dollars, yearly. The conversation should move away from foreign investors to Sierra Leonean entrepreneurs, manufacturers, business professionals, etc finding a way to connect with domestic citizens of Salone, who have the skill, resource, manpower, and willpower.

    It is OUR duty and ours ALONE to develop the Salone economy – not the chinese or the americans or indians, lebanese, etc. It is us Sierra Leoneans. Please, lets start directing the convo in our favor.
