President Bio promised that his government will continue to invest in Human Capital Development to make citizens competitive and fit for purpose in the 21st Century.
“Hence, we will invest in improving the Free Quality Education programme because human capital development is crucial for our national development,” the president added.
He mentioned that in the past 8 months, his government pursued disciplined management of the economy by sealing leakages and streamlining domestic revenue mobilization. He said “our multilateral partners have resumed engagement with and support for our nation because they recognize that what we are doing for our economy is good for our country.”
According to him, in November 2018, the International Monetary Fund approved a new arrangement under the Extended Credit Facility to support Sierra Leone’s economic and financial reforms.
“Our robust and relentless fight against corruption has led to the recovery of Le8.4 billion of stolen public money in just the last six months. We will invest that money in facilities such as a well-equipped Medical Diagnostic Hospital that will serve the needs of every Sierra Leonean,” President Bio maintained.
