“Concerted efforts like these  do not only have the potential to create jobs and reduce income inequality but can also help release the potential of the country in  contributing  significantly to  the sustenance of  economic growth.” Parminder Brar confirmed.

He stated that targeted flows of scarce grant and concessional resources can attract significant levels of private investment to Sierra Leone and that the conference will address risk-return concerns by aligning the public and private sectors around shared objectives.

 He pointed out key sectors that are to be targeted during the implementation of the Private Sector Window, such as Agriculture, infrastructure, health, Education, affordable housing and climate change mitigation and adaption, among others.
