Ebola Response
Trade Exhibition

The Sierra Leone private sector was setback drastically as a result of the Ebola outbreak that ravaged West Africa. In an effort to revive what is commonly acknowledged as the backbone of a country's development, EMM collaborated with the Irish Embassy to host an Ebola Response Trade Exhibition

The essence of the one day exhibition was to showcase goods and services which are readily available in Sierra Leone so that Non Governmental Organization (NGO) procurement officers will make use of these local services, subsequently boosting the private sector

Statements from the National Ebola Response Committee, UNMEER, Standard Chartered Bank and other private sector stakeholders were aimed at the international community to direct their funding towards the private sector revitalization.
