This visit constitutes a “turning point in relations between Sierra Leone and Morocco and represents what I would call a new beginning in our partnership,” Koroma told the press after a Moroccan-Sierra Leonean economic forum.
This partnership will strengthen both the bilateral ties and the economic relations between the two countries, he added.

Sierra Leone is a country with enormous potential and natural resources in tourism and mining in particular, Ernest Bai Koroma said, noting that the visit of the Moroccan delegation to Sierra Leone will guarantee a strong partnership benefiting both parties.
The forum highlighted Sierra Leone’s investment opportunities in terms of public-private partnership (health, agriculture, energy, Transport, etc.) and private-private partnership (commercial banks, insurance, economic housing, etc.).
It was also marked by cluster discussions on mining, trade, business climate, tourism, transport, energy, financial institutions, agriculture and fisheries.
