                                                       Bulletin                                   (Sierra Leone)

                                                                                               

The Republic of Sierra Leone was a British Colony from 1808.  She gained her Independence from Great Britain in 1961 and became Republican State in 1971. 

From 1991 – 2002, the country experienced an excruciating fratricidal war.  1992 – 1996 Sierra Leone was ruled by Military Juntas (NPRC).  1996 – 2007 this small, but great nation of about six million people with strong desire for democracy elected His Excellency Dr Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, President and Head of State.


The Turning point of the Republic of Sierra Leone:

 

In 2007, the people of the Republic of Sierra Leone reposed their confidence and trust in the opposition leader Ernest Bai Koroma and elected him in free, fair and democratic elections.

As consequence of the war and the ineptitude of the past regimes, His Excellency Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma inherited a very weak state economy, dark country and dilapidated infrastructures.

He has spent these momentous five years in setting the pace for development and transformation of Sierra Leone for generation yet unborn.

Lets come together to build a better Sierra Leone. Remember, it’s the only Sierra Leone in the whole world.

Sierra Leone's Appeal To Tourists

Sierra Leone offers a wide variety of tourist attractions such as extended and roomy river and ocean beaches ideal for swimming and other water sports, unique wildlife, vast tracts of unspoiled nature ranging from tropical forests, magnificent waterfalls, some new rapidly growing cities and climatic conditions in some parts particularly conducive to holidaying. Other attractions include traditional ways of life preserved in local customs; rich and varied handicrafts and other colorful products depicting or illustrative of native arts and lifestyle, and the authentic unsophisticated but friendly attitude of many in the Sierra Leonean population. However, many of these attractions are still largely untapped and even at their raw, undeveloped state, they are still being enjoyed by few outsiders, either very rich visitors in quest of exoticism or adventurous people in search of new challenges and experiences. The lack of required modern infrastructural facilities and in some parts of the country, acute conditions of underdevelopment and poverty can be seen which many potential Sierra Leone bound tourist may not like to be confronted with. These are impediments to tourism, which the new administration has been tackling since assumption of office. Investors, both foreign and local, are therefore called upon to come and invest in the abundant tourism potentials in the country. The richness and diversity of Sierra Leone's tourism resources coupled with economic liberalization policies will provide investment opportunities in various areas as follows:

  • Eco-tourism, including Wildlife Tourism Resources
  • Building of tourist lodges
  • Building of reception centers at Natural/Physical Attractions 
  • Provision of cable bus system to take tourist through the very rugged but scenic terrain of the mountains all round the city....construction of lodge cabins for expedition tourist and rangers.
  • Establishment of hotels and resorts near the sea sides.
  • Beach Tourism potentials Establishment of boating and sport fishing facilities
  • Development of water transportation Provision of educational facilities for water skiing and swimming
  • Establishment of holiday resorts along the coasts.
  • Development of Amusement parks, entertainment facilities and shopping services
  • Development of arts and crafts which constitute symbol of the people's cultural values and love for nature.

Meanwhile, most of Sierra Leone's beautiful beach locations are still largely without accommodation facilities, which are good targets for investors in most tourism destinations across the globe.
