The Minister of Energy of Sierra Leone, Henry Macauley, visited the Cairo headquarters of the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) today to seek the Bank’s support for the Government’s effort to meet the country’s energy needs.
The Minister, who rounded up the visit with a courtesy call on Afreximbank President Dr. Benedict Oramah, outlined the government’s strategy to achieve increased energy production and distribution across the country.
He expressed Sierra Leone’s desire for the active involvement of Afreximbank in the implementation of that strategy.
Earlier, Mr. Macauley held meetings with Afreximbank intra-African trade team led by Kanayo Awani, Managing Director of the Intra-African trade Initiative.
The meetings were facilitated by Simon Tiemtore, Chairman and CEO of the New York-based Lilium Holdings investment management company.
