Thank you for this posting. It is great to hear that a country with a long history of civil war now has a high degree of investor interest. It is especially compelling that the majority of funds have been used to improve the infrastructure of the nation, since this is bound to yield sustainable results. I am just curious as to what the incentive(s) are of investors. Are they more motivated by potential financial prosperity, or are they more interested in assisting in nation-building? If the main reason is due to nation-building efforts, is there a specific reason why investors have chosen to invest in Sierra Leone, as opposed to other "failing states"? The fact that infrastructure is being developed is certainly positive news, yet I am curious as to why the specific nation of Sierra Leone has such investment.
