Sierra Leone’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Her Excellency Francess Virginia Anderson has in an exclusive interview with AYV highlighted some of the successes she has made so far since she assumed office.

She said rebranding the image of Sierra Leone to the international community is one of the major successes she has made since she took up office some three years ago.

She furthered that prior to her appointment as High Commissioner to Ghana; lots of people including diplomats were in doubt as to whether Sierra Leone was actually represented in Ghana.

Her Excellency continued that in order to attract investors to Sierra Leone and rebrand the image of the country, she organised the first ever investment seminar for Sierra Leone in Ghana.

The seminar according to her has not only made the presence of Sierra Leone felt in Ghana but has also attracted a lot of investor to Sierra Leone some of whom are currently in country whilst others are on their way and many showing interest to invest in Sierra Leone. 

Speaking on her mission’s relationship with the Sierra Leone community in Ghana, she told this medium that as a Commission, they have a very cordial relationship with the Sierra Leone community in Ghana while she added  that she has personally always ensured that she makes them feel at home in Ghana.

She added that away from making the Sierra Leone community in Ghana feel at home in Ghana, her Commission also provides assistance to Sierra Leoneans who go to Ghana for medical attention. 

Asked whether she is faced with challenges, she was quick to say that indeed there are challenges but will not go into highlighting them as she has always seen challenges as learning points.

Her Excellency ended by calling on all Sierra Leoneans both home and abroad to join the New Direction Government of President Bio in showcasing the good image of Sierra Leone to the international community.
