In his keynote address, the Minister of Planning and Economic Development, Dr. Francis Kai-Kai thanked the United Nations for consistently demonstrating determination to support least developed countries to transform into prosperous and advanced nations.

He added that both the global and National HDR reports are crucial to the government’s determination to transform Sierra Leone from a state of fragility into a resilient nation, promoting sustainable development.

“We are committed to change the landscape and narrative of our poverty and human development estimates within the framework of our current Medium Term, National Development Plan (2019-2023). The government has accepted critical steps towards achieving resilience and sustainable development. These include a renewed focus on decentralized development that prioritizes rural areas and effective coordination of delivering services to the people,” the minister stated.

Simultaneously launching the Global and Sierra Leone’s 4th National Human Development reports, Dr. Kai-Kai mentioned he is confident that going forward, Sierra Leone will do better in developing credible statistical systems and would also do well in the implementation of the Medium term National Development Plan (2019-2023).
