A State House press statement confirmed that the SLPP government is aiming to attract investment and trade to Sierra Leone with the Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry during the state visit. The meeting is an indication of President Bio’s continued efforts to revitalise our economy. After the meeting with Chamber of Commerce, President Bio will be hosted by the Qatar Minister of Foreign Affairs for an official welcome reception.

The President is expected to meet with His Highness, The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani on Sunday 22nd April 2018 where bilateral meeting will be held between the two Heads of State. Maada Bio will be expected to express his appreciation to the Emir and people of Qatar for their support to Sierra Leone over the years and discuss how his new Government will strengthen the bilateral relationship.
 


Over the years, Qatar has been very supportive to Sierra Leone providing humanitarian, medical and relief assistance to Sierra Leone when the country was hit by floods and Ebola. The diplomatic successes of President Bio in less than three weeks in office has shown a great President admired at home and abroad.

Sierra Leone on the Current Impasse between Qatar and Arab States


The Government of the Republic of Sierra Leone notes with great anxiety the deterioration in relations between Qatar and its Arab and Muslim brothers - Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates.

Sierra Leone regrets that such escalation of political, economic and diplomatic tensions among nation-states diminishes our collective search for international peace and security. People of Sierra Leone believe that constructive dialogue remains the only viable hope for peace in the Middle East and indeed in the world at large.

At the same time, Sierra Leone as a member of the Organization of Islamic Conference invokes the principles envisaged in the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) Charter in calling for peaceful resolution to the ongoing diplomatic and economic impasse and believes that the peaceful resolution of this crisis will bolster cooperation in the fight against extremism, radicalism and terrorism world-wide.
 


We strongly believe that the founding principles of the Arab League, the Gulf Cooperation Council, and the Organization of Islamic Conference, of which Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar are members, necessitate the promotion of brotherly, religious, social, cultural and economic solidarity in meeting historic and emerging challenges in the Arabian Peninsula, The Gulf, the wider Middle East and the world at large.

The Government of the Republic of Sierra Leone therefore urges the sustainability of diplomatic efforts by Kuwait and other countries as they mediate in this crisis. As one of the most religiously tolerant nations, and promoter of peace amongst nations, Sierra Leone supports a resolution that aids economic, religious and cultural cooperation in the fight against terrorism and the promotion of peace and justice in the Middle East and the world at large.
