There may have never been a better time to invest in Sierra Leone’s travel and tourism infrastructure.
Sierra Leone is located in West Africa with tropical beaches, stunning nature, and culture. It has been in the spotlight as a new emerging travel and tourism destination until the virus broke out. Sierra Leone’s tourism minister Memunatu B. Pratt has been seen being outspoken and active at trade shows and travel conferences around the globe. She acted immediately after the outbreak of the coronavirus.

This light includes the rebuilding of the travel and tourism industry, regional and global cooperation, and the environment is set to make Sierra Leone as the prime hot spot to invest in tourism.
