AMR Gold Sponsors UK-Sierra Leone Trade & Investment Forum


    AMR Gold Exploration Company has sponsored the United Kingdom-Sierra Leone Trade & Investment Forum in London, marking the country’s most significant investment outreach in recent years.
    The Sierra Leone Government used the UK-Sierra Leone Trade & Investment Forum to drive home its Post-Ebola Recovery Plan aimed at restoring and strengthening private sector growth and encouraging new inward investment.
    The prestigious forum comprised of both plenary and more targeted sessions, where senior Ministers were joined by AMR Gold and other high-level private sector representatives in highlighting investment opportunities in Sierra Leone.
    AMR Gold’s Special Technical Advisor, Colin Harris, presented to delegates during a session entitled ‘Investing in Extractives’ and highlighted AMR Gold’s work as an example of best practice. He particularly focused on investment into the local community and the over 300 Sierra Leonean’s currently employed by subsidiary company, the Wilkinson Hill Mining Company.
    At the Forum, organised by Developing Markets Associates (DMA), the government presented its investment priorities for key sectors – including extractives, agriculture and infrastructure – to senior figures from the international business and investment community.
