President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma, leading a high-level delegation, left the shores of Freetown this evening Sunday 25 October to attend the Third India Africa Forum Summit to be held in Delhi, India from 26-30 October 2015.
During the five-day visit, President Koroma is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other Indian officials to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral relations and cooperation between the two countries.
The president will also address the Indian Africa Forum Summit where he is expected to highlight Sierra Leone’s strides in the fight against Ebola and also showcase the country’s efforts at economic growth and business and investment potentials.
The summit is going to be the Modi government’s biggest diplomatic outreach involving delegates from many African countries.
Indian-Sierra Leone relations date as far back as several decades ago. This summit will provide another unique opportunity for both countries to fully harness the bilateral framework for productive cooperation between the two countries.
