Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
The Bank of Sierra Leone continues to promote financial sector development by providing the appropriate regulatory frameworks to enable the use of a new generation of financial instruments and types of transaction such as mobile financial services. (in plain speak it means better mechanisms for transparency and the elimination of graft and kick-backs).
The work isn’t all sweatshops. There are positive influences at play and they often reflect I the articles they create.
The Bank is putting in place the infrastructure to support a modern payments and settlement system; and also preparing a National Financial Inclusion strategy with the objective of increasing access to affordable finance.
