The Minister of Trade and Industry, Edward Hinga Sandy, on Friday 29th November 2019, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, in Freetown, assured local marketers that he would have a dialogue with them and review local market policies where necessary. He made this statement to local marketers during a two days trade fair exhibition at the Radisson Blu Hotel, organized by the Local Content Agency, and the Small and Medium Enterprise. The rationale behind the trade fair was for local marketers to showcase their locally made products, thus, to ensure the growth of the local market industry in the country. The Minister stressed the need for such an exhibition. He said, it’s high time the local marketing industry takes a new dimension. He said, the trade fair exhibited a true and refreshed energy among local marketers in the country. “What we have seen is a testimony of the work they have been doing, and my Ministry will ensure that our local products go international,” he said. “The country will soon begin to do trading with neighboring countries under the Inter-continental free trade agreement,” he noted. He said, the new trade system will provide a platform where neighboring countries will do trade with their own currency. “The future of the country is in the hands of the private sector,” he opined.
