At the end of a three-day tour to three cities in Holland dubbed, ‘Ambassador’s tour to promote Sierra Leone’s Trade and Investment Opportunities’, Ambassador Ibrahim Sorie has assured Dutch Investors that his country should be a favoured destination for them because of the government’s friendly policies for investors.

The Sierra Leone government, Ambassador Sorie revealed, has created the enabling environment to attract any serious investor ranging from tax holiday, duty-free concessions for some capital investments, one-stop shop for registration of business, Fast-Track Commercial Court to expedite settlements of commercial disputes and many other facilities.

“Sierra Leone has very attractive incentives for investors that can match any other country in the sub-region”, the Ambassador reiterated.

The three-day Trade and Investment Promotion tour which took Ambassador Sorie and entourage to three major cities in Holland – Wageningen, Tilburg and Amsterdam was organised by the Sierra Leone Central Union (SLCU), the umbrella organisation of Sierra Leoneans in Holland, to promote economic growth that will accelerate the implementation of the Agenda for Prosperity and at the same time help put Sierra Leone investment opportunities on a networking platform in Holland.
