‘Don’t Always Wait On Government,’ Jones Tells Liberians
Johnson Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, May 12 (LINA) -The Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), J. Mills Jones, has challenged Liberian businessmen to take initiatives and not to always wait on government for support.

Dr. Jones said Liberians should be the ones in stores doing business and not foreigners who dominate the Liberian economy.

The CBL boss was speaking over the weekend in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County to marketers, Liberian business owners, credit unions and citizens of Bassa at the Fair Ground Pavilion.

The Liberia News Agency quotes Governor Jones as saying that Liberians dominating the businesses sector will help bring development to the country.

Governor Jones said access to credit, which is the CBL’s own way of helping Liberians to do business and build the private sector, will enable Liberia reach the middle income mark that it is targeting in the Agenda for Transformation.

Dr. Jones said: “This is not going to happen by talking, not by playing politics, but it is going to happen by actually putting citizens to work in the private sector, in this trend Liberia will grow from a low to middle income” country.

He assured the Liberian business community that the CBL remains a friend to the private sector and will continue to do what has been established in the interest of the future of Liberia.

Jones reminded Bassa citizens that the “CBL is not throwing away money, but trying to invest in the future of Liberia.

He told detractors that as Governor of the CBL, he sees “nothing wrong with empowering citizens of Liberia, and therefore, sees no reason to apologize to anybody for doing that.”
