The country’s envoy to China, HE Ambassador Alimamy P. Koroma said Sierra Leone was grateful that the Chinese Government continues to help “our government and people in building our human resource capacity.” He admonished those that are direct beneficiaries to make the best use of the opportunity.

“China is the place today where people from all over the world including America, Europe come for education and training. So our students here stand to become the great professional students from these other countries after their training in China.”

He said, as an Embassy “we welcome our compatriots and commit ourselves to giving our support to them during the course of their studies and to continue to work with the authorities of the Chinese government.”

The country’s student’s leader in China, Saidu M. Sesay sees the latest award of scholarships as a plus to Sierra Leone’s human resource base, “especially in increasing the knowledge and experience of those successful students.

Sesay said, the entire student body is thankful to the Chinese Government for the increase in the number of successful students to 49, which “clearly indicates the interest the Chinese government continues to demonstrate towards our country’s development agenda, especially in the area of human resource development.”

He commended the Government of Sierra Leone, through the Ministry of Education for providing the platform for students to pursue high studies abroad, also calling on colleague students to return home after studies and be part of the change process.

China and Sierra Leone continue to enjoy unbroken ties of friendship both at the people-to-people and government (diplomatic) levels.

China is one of Sierra Leone’s strategic development partners. It continues to support the country in a number of sectors, not least infrastructure, health and human resource growth through the annual provision of scholarships to deserving students.
