In a promising development for Sierra Leone’s economic growth, Sierra Leone’s High Commissioner to the UK, Dr. Manyeh, along with senior officials, convened discussions this week with Mark Ishakov, the founder and CEO of ETIOCA, a thriving $27 billion electric car company headquartered in Gibraltar.
The talks aimed to explore and initiate plans for establishing a parts manufacturing facility within Sierra Leone.
This ambitious multi-million dollar project has the potential to generate numerous employment opportunities in Sierra Leone, a nation grappling with high unemployment rates, offering a ray of hope for its workforce.
ETIOCA, renowned for its commitment to creating alternative and sustainable mobility solutions, aspires to lead the electric mobility revolution by providing an extensive range of vehicles and services for both professionals and consumers.
Their mission aligns perfectly with Sierra Leone’s vision for economic diversification and progress.
ETIOCA, despite its current workforce of fewer than 50 employees, envisions a global ecosystem of electric taxis and vehicles, complemented by a comprehensive suite of services tailored to enhance the experience of both drivers and passengers. This endeavor signifies a significant step toward fostering innovation and job creation in Sierra Leone.
The discussions between Sierra Leone’s High Commissioner and ETIOCA represent a promising opportunity for the country to establish itself as a hub for electric vehicle manufacturing, contributing not only to its economic development but also to the global shift toward sustainable transportation solutions.
