Freetown, SIERRA LEONE – According to the Managing Director of SALWACO, George Lamin Vandi, there has been a lot of reforms that have taken place under the current SALWACO management, adding that they are in line with the vision and mission of the Government of Sierra Leone. He made this statement during a day technical sub-committee management meeting and presentation of 2021 annual report at the Company’s Board Room, at Tower Hill, in Freetown.
Vandi also spoke about the re-engineering of the company and the review of its organizational structure which he said was a step in the right direction. “More deliverables are needed. However, the management has been working assiduously to ensure that the right results were achieved. There is a need for more government support so that the company will continue to achieve more progressive results,” he added.
During the meeting, Badamasi Savage, Chairman of the sub-committee and a member of SALWACO Board noted that the meeting was a very important aspect of the company’s growth and progress. He encouraged all attendees to treat technical issues with utmost seriousness, urging that even with some expected challenges, all hands have to be on deck so as to ultimately attain endless institutional progress.
“For the second year running, SALWACO is now able to present an annual report. I urge that the same should now be institutionalized for other years to come” said the Board Chairman of SALWACO, Mohamed Alie Jalloh.
Jalloh stressed that such should be seen as a core to the culture of leadership of the company. He added that SALWACO should also be able to determine what may be internal and external funding, noting that it will be a prudent decision to make now and in the future.
There were meaningful contributions from other Board Members and top Management and Staff who were present. They spoke on the need to be more resourceful and result oriented, elaborating that the effective implementation of policies and the absolute collaboration with other ministries, departments and related agencies should also be prioritized.
