They discussed investments opportunities in the telecoms sector and the Ambassador presented two Egyptian investors with the intention to invest in the sector.

The Minister thanked the Ambassador for his warm welcome and expressed his appreciation to the Egyptian government for their numerous support to the country. The Information Minister informed him that President Julius Maada Bio is open to genuine investment in Sierra Leone that will benefit the country and the investors too.

He told him that Sierra Leone is peaceful and open to business. “We are open to genuine investments thatare the vision of the President. We have worked as a government to remove bottlenecks to encourage investments in all sectors that will result to a win-win situation,” the Minister said.

The meeting was concluded with both parties pledging to continue working in the best interest of the people of both countries. The Minister was presented with a beautiful souvenir “tasbih” by the Egyptian Ambassador.
