This 2008 Article IV Consultation highlights that Sierra Leone’s macroeconomic performance in 2008 was mixed. Output growth reached 6.4 percent in 2007, led by solid agricultural and mining production and buoyant activity in the construction and services sectors. The external current account deficit increased slightly in 2007 following a slight deterioration in the terms of trade. The authorities have made significant progress in implementing structural reforms in key areas. Growth prospects over the medium term remain encouraging with the expansion of available land for agriculture and intensification of extension services.
