Japan Renews Support To Liberia’s Development

By Prince Nagbe

MONROVIA, July 4 (LINA) -The Japanese Ambassador to Liberia, Naoto Nikai, has said his government will focus its assistance to Liberia’s infrastructure and human capacity development drive.

According to Ambassador Nikai, this is aimed at bolstering Liberia’s effort in the attainment of the goals outlined in itsAgenda For Transformation (AFT).

The Japanese envoy made the disclosure at the opening session of the First Japan-Liberia Business and Investment Dialogue held in the C. Cecil Dennis Auditorium at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday in Monrovia.

The two-day dialogue ends Friday.

Ambassador Nikai noted that Japan’s assistance in both infrastructure and human development will include health, food security, public administration and youth.

He said he believes that this Japanese official development assistance will enhance sustainable development of the country, increase foreign direct investment and boost the economic development of Liberia through further engagement of the public sector.

The Japanese envoy further disclosed that private companies from his country are “greatly interested” in exploring business opportunities in Africa, especially in Liberia, due to the long-standing ties between the two countries dating back to 1961.

According to him, the arrival of Japanese companies will expedite technology transfer and local job creation and that his government will mobilize resources to support them doing business in Africa, especially in Liberia.

The Japanese envoy, however, called on the Government of Liberia to create a business-friendly environment for those companies in order to facilitate a smooth market in Liberia.

“I hope this first Japan-Liberia Business and Investment Dialogue will become an excellent opportunity for all stakeholders in seeking business in Liberia and will foster the already cordial relationship between the two countries,” he added.
