China Offers To Build New Museum In Liberia
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, May 29 (LINA) -The Director of the National Museum of Liberia, Albert Markey, has disclosed that the Government of the People’s Republic of China has offered to construct a new National Museum in Liberia.

Mr. Markey said the Chinese Government has requested the Liberian Government to make available a parcel of land to construct the new museum at an estimated cost of US$1.5 million to be borne by the Chinese Government.

He said delay by the Liberian Government to make available the land is stalling the implementation of the project.

 Meanwhile, Mr. Markey has commended the Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, Lewis G. Brown, for affording him the opportunity to travel to the United States of America on an international fellowship.

He said the American Embassy near Monrovia through the United States Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs offered him a three-week intensive study tour of some museums and historical sites of U.S. from April 25 to May 17.

According to him, the workshop participants came from Liberia, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Bolivia, China, Kuwait, Mongolia, Palestine, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, Turkey, Zimbabwe and Tajikistan.
