The Minister of Information and Communications, Mohamed Rahman Swaray, has lauded Concord Times for taking the initiative to organise a summit to discuss Sierra Leone’s post-COVID-19 inclusive recovery.

During a brief chat with Concord Times earlier in the week, Mr. Swaray said, “I have come a long way with Concord Times, and I believe this program is going to be fantastic.”

Minister Swaray has been invited as a Guest of Honour at the event; he assured Concord times of his full participation.

Momentum is increasing around the Concord Times Summit 2021 and Awards Night scheduled to take place on the 8 and 9 of October respectively.

The former President of Liberia and Nobel laureate Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf will deliver the keynote address.

The summit is themed Fresh Answers: The People, Good Governance, and post-Covid-19 Inclusive Recovery. During the Awards Night, individuals and organisations that have made outstanding contributions to society will be recognised.

Mr. Swaray is considered one of Sierra Leone’s consequential ministers, having championed the effort that led to the repeal of the Seditious Libel Law.

After the repeal, press freedom activists around the world commended the government for the bold move.

While Mr. Swaray has vowed to continue to help expand the frontiers of press freedom, he has also advised journalists to act responsibly.

The minister has long-lasting relationships with media practitioners in Sierra Leone, including past and current managers of the Concord Times.

During the summit, other distinguished Sierra Leonean experts will make presentations on topics, including climate change, youth empowerment, international cooperation, energy, civil society, regional integration, citizens-government relations, and so on.

Summit participants will include policymakers, diplomats, business leaders, development experts, civil society activists, media practitioners, youth and women leaders across Sierra Leone and beyond. Tens of thousands more will follow proceedings on social media.
