In keeping with their statutory mandate to promote investment and encourage domestic market growth in Sierra Leone’s agricultural commercialization to meet both regional and international standards, the Sierra Leone Investment and Export Promotion Agency (SLIEPA) in collaboration with line ministries and other stakeholders on Wednesday 11th August 2010 commenced a two-day sensitization and validation workshop at Mamba Point, Wilberforce in Freetown.
The workshop is geared towards creating room for the formalization of a national policy on Agriculture Marketing Information System. The importance of the national policy is to help SLEIPA access credible information that will woo more investors in to the country. It will also help commercial farmers to upgrade their agricultural products for the market.
