Dr. Kabba told the Global Times that President Bio intends to engage high ranking officials of the Chinese government during his State Visit to China. He described the visit as an opportunity for the two leaders to get to know each other and build a lasting relationship.
Sierra Leone’s newly appointed Ambassador to China, Chief Ernest Ndomahina (Jr) left Freetown yesterday to officially assume his new role in Beijing.
President Bio will be accompanied to China by his adoring wife, Mrs. Fatima Bio and a retinue of senior Cabinet Ministers and government officials including the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Dr. Alie Kabba and Agriculture, Joseph Ndanema.
Upon his return from China, President Bio will travel to New York, a week later, to attend this year’s United Nations General Assembly meeting and he is expected to chair and address several fringe meetings on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, according to a senior Presidential Aide at State House.
