Sierra Leone’s Minister of Transport and Aviation, Fanday Turay has signed performance contracts with Heads of Agencies under his ministry’s oversight.
The signing marked a significant milestone in commitment to delivering excellence within the transport sector and signifies collective determination to enhance the safety, reliability and accessibility of the country’s transportation systems.
Minister Turay said: “I signed performance contracts with Heads of Agencies under my ministry’s oversight. Today’s event marks a significant milestone in our commitment to delivering excellence within the transport sector. The contract signifies our collective determination to enhance the safety, reliability and accessibility of our transportation systems.
“It sets forth our shared vision for innovation, sustainability, and customer satisfaction. This represents President Bio’s firm commitment to the principles of inclusiveness, accountability and transparency as we work together to shape the future of transportation in our nation.”
The World Bank Board had approved a $74 million International Development Association (IDA) grant to enhance climate-resilient transport connectivity and agricultural market access in Sierra Leone.
The Sierra Leone Connectivity and Agricultural Market Infrastructure Project (CAMIP) will support all-season connectivity and access to jobs, markets, and services, particularly in rural areas where the lack of infrastructure has been a major barrier to economic development.
Minister Turay said: “The construction of climate-resilient transport and agricultural market infrastructure is a critical step towards ensuring food security and increasing local incomes, which is in line with our government’s key priorities in the ‘Big 5 Game Changers’, especially the ‘FEED SALONE’ Agenda.
“Our collaboration with the World Bank on this project is a testament to our commitment to safeguarding our economy and our people from climate risks. By enhancing our transport network and market infrastructure, we are laying the groundwork for sustainable economic growth and social development”.
