With one of Africa’s fastest growing economies, Sierra Leone pre-Ebola was seen as a post-conflict success story.  The Ebola epidemic has severely compromised the country’s economic trajectory, with annual GDP growth projections made in June 2014, revised from 11.3 to 4.0 percent.

Post-Ebola economic renaissance in Sierra Leone and the role of the private sector will bring together the leading minds in the spheres of Sierra Leonean business, industry, investment, finance, governance and development policy to share insights and identify innovative approaches to accelerating sustainable post-Ebola economic development, as well as promote awareness of Sierra Leone’s needs and opportunities.

Our panellists will introduce and guide the discussion:

Rt. Hon David Lammy, Member of Parliament for Tottenham (chairing)

Dr. Samura Kamara, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Government of Sierra Leone

John Sisay, CEO, Sierra Rutile Ltd and President of the Sierra Leone Chamber of Mines

Prof. Monty Jones, Special Adviser to the President of Sierra Leone and 2004 World Food Prize Laureate
