Sierra Leone Chamber for Agribusiness Development (SLeCAD) on Tuesday 14th January 2014 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security in the Ministry's conference room in Freetown.


The MOU was to develop the Agricultural Business sector in the country. The ceremony which brought together stakeholders in the agriculture business sector, was aimed to set the agenda on how both parties could work together to develop the country's agricultural sector.

 

Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security, Dr. Sam Sesay said when he assumed office six years ago; he held several consultative meetings with the private sector, donors and government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to launch the program for the development of agriculture in Sierra Leone.

 

He said one of the successful outcomes these meetings was the formation of the Agriculture Private Sector Forum for the existing and prospective local private investors in the agriculture sector.

 

He continued that after the meetings, the document titled "Integrated Program for Private Investment in Agriculture in Sierra Leone (IPPIASL) was approved and later transformed into the Chamber of Agriculture.

 

Its decision was expeditiously implemented and the Sierra Leone Chamber of Agribusiness Development (SLeCAD) duly incorporated as a limited liability company on 16th April 2009.

 

Dr. Sam Sesay went on that since government prioritized agriculture as the engine for economic growth, the ministry had recognized the fact that it cannot succeed without the participation of the private sector, thus the reason for the signing of the MOU. He expressed hope that they would work together as a team to develop the agricultural sector for the benefit of farmers and the entire country.

 

Executive Secretary of the Sierra Leone Chamber of Agribusiness Development (SLeCAD), Mr. Nanoe said the signing of the MOU would facilitate their work by transforming the current status of farming and farmers so to help government achieve food sufficiency.

 

He thanked the minister and the ministry for the support rendered them since the institution was established, noting that they have done a lot to improve the agriculture sector in Sierra Leone. He also appealed to the minister for more financial, moral and technical support and promised to abide by the terms of the MOU.
