Bill On Forest Social Contracts Submitted To House

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, September 26 (LINA) - A Representative of  Gbarpolu County, Alfred Koiwood, has introduced a bill to compel concessionaires to implement 30 percent of social agreements reached with the government before starting operations.

The bill is titled: “An Act seeking to compel concessionaires to implement 30% of social agreements with respect to community forest resources before officially commencing operations in the affected communities.” 

Koiwood, who submitted the Bill, told Plenary that it is basically intended to legally ensure that those companies in the constant habit of not living up to concession agreements comply in advance, the Liberia News Agency (LINA) reports.

He noted that when the bill is enacted, and subsequently printed into handbill, the “flagrant delinquent” implementation of social agreements on the part of concession companies will come to a halt.

Following the introduction of the Act, Plenary forwarded the instrument to the Committees on Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Judiciary and Investment and Concession for scrutiny and recommendation (s) with the mandate to report in two weeks.
