Speaking at the U.S. – Africa Business Summit in a High Level Dialogue on Critical Minerals, Dr. Moinina Sengeh prevailed on the gathering that the greatest asset that Sierra Leone has is its Human Capital. He said President Bio is determined to continue on the trajectory of making education accessible, as well as affordable in the country.

On critical minerals, Dr. Moinina Sengeh reiterated the efforts of the government in making business easy and simple for investors. He informed the room that Sierra Leone has done a geological survey that has mapped out the deposits of all mineral resources in the country. Dr. Sengeh thanked World Bank for supporting that project of geological survey. “Sierra Leone has data on all minerals in the country”, Dr. Sengeh said, noting that it will provide a better understanding what specific minerals are available in the country.

The Chief Minister impressed on his audience that the government of Sierra Leone has created the Minerals Wealth Fund. Dr. Moinina Sengeh said it was very deliberate that Minerals Wealth Fund was created so that the proceeds of the natural resources of the people should go directly to their localities for development.

Furthermore, the Chief Minister mentioned the Minerals Development Act that the government has executed to make business in the mining sector more productive, and investor friendly. He appealed to United States investors to take advantage of the conducive business atmosphere in Sierra Leone. *We have United States investors in the country – we want more of U.S. investors to come – put the investment monies on the ground in Sierra Leone” said Dr. Sengeh.
In another engagement, Dr. David Moinina Sengeh entertained vital discussions with Pfizer Group for the establishment and accessibility of Pfizer drugs in Sierra Leone. This will mean Sierra Leoneans having access to quality medical facilities and first-class drugs in the country.

Dr. Moinina Sengeh also engaged with a Conglomerate of Energy Companies in Texas, and in the room with the Chief Minister were the Deputy Minister of Finance, Ms Kadie Allie, and the Minister of Energy Hon. Edmond Nuni, and Sierra Leone’s Ambassador to United States, and people from the private sector investing in Sierra Leone. The Sierra Leone team on energy extensively explored the opportunity of working with the Energy Conglomerates in Texas. Chief Minister mentioned to energy conglomerates that DFC, MCC are major United States financial institutions that are working with the government to ensure energy is generated for the people Sierra Leone.
