Commissioner Nudges China Union To Employ Locals

By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, Jan 21 (LINA) -The Commissioner of  Fuamah District  in Bong County, Hampton Giddings, is appealing to the management of China Union  to consider hiring local contractors to renovate residential quarters recently turned over to the company.

The Liberian government has paid some US$500,000 to about 827 heads of household as relocation packages to take over dozens of housing units built by the former Bong Mines Company for handover to China Union in keeping with a Mineral Development Agreement.

Commissioner Giddings said citizens of the area were well-trained in the building trade, and will do a good job if given the chance.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Mr. Giddings made the appeal Monday in Fuamah District at a program marking the official turning over of Bong Mines Camp houses to China Union by the Government.

Speaking earlier at the program, the Deputy Manager of China Union, Mr. Xing Ming Ding promised to renovate camp houses of the former Bong Mines Company which were recently vacated by squatters 

He promised that China Union will not import contractors to do jobs that residents of the district can equally do, and disclosed that the company will open an office in the Fuamah District and will also open a registry of masons, carpenters, plumbers, painters, and other professionals for easy reference.
