TUBMANBURG, June 24 (LINA) - Superintendent Samuel Brown has disclosed that Sime Darby Company and Bomi County have reached an agreement to allow the company to expand its operations to Senjeh District in the county.

Superintendent Brown said the company will spend over US$200,000 as payment for the crops to be affected by the expansion.
Superintendent Brown said he was satisfied with the current operations of the company in Gbar, Klay District, Bomi County.
