Abstract:50 years after independence, Sierra Leoneans announced a new determination to create an environment that would foster rapid and sustained economic growth that is widely beneficial to their own citizens. This book is the result of collaboration between the International Growth Centre (ICG) and the Bank of Sierra Leone, and addresses issues of policy reform in specific areas such as the financial sector, export promotion, education and training, land tenure, the mining industry, food production and food security, and the justice system. Point of departure is that policymakers can greatly improve the country's economic growth prospects by designing and implementing policies over which they have adequate control. Contributions are divided into five sections: I Introduction (Omotunde E.G. Johnson); II Macroeconomics and financial sector issues (contributions by Robert Dauda Korsu and Lansana Daboh, Omotunde E.G. Johnson, Olufemi Sallyanne Decker, and Hugh Kweku Fraser); III Private sector development and export promotion (contributions by Omotunde E.G. Johnson, Marianna Belloc and Michele Di Maio, Christian Kingombe, and Chukwu-Emeka Chikezie); IV The real sectors (contributions by Amara Idara Sheriff and Ben A. Massaquoi, Joseph M. Kargbo, and Herbert P. M'cleod); V Governance and social services (contributions by Alaina Varvaloucas, Simeon Koroma, Momo Turay and Bilal Siddiqi, and Agnes J.S. Pessima). [ASC Leiden abstract]
