MONROVIA, November 24 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson has emphasized the need for a sustainable partnership between Liberia and the international community for the country to build a vibrant post-Ebola economy.
President Sirleaf said many Liberians envisage a period when more job opportunities will be created through strong economic programs that will enable families to lead sustainable lives.
The Liberian leader made the statement at a program marking the official hand-over of a consignment of medical supplies and materials donated to Liberia by nine countries of the European Union.
The program was held Monday at the premises of the National Port Authority (NPA) in Monrovia.
President Sirleaf said the country is approaching the finishing line in a protracted health crisis, and that more efforts aimed at accelerating the country’s response and quest to succeed must be a top priority of Liberia and its partners.
She also emphasized the need to increase the country’s response not only to combat the Ebola virus, but to strengthen the general health care system so that it addresses the needs of the people.
Meanwhile, President Sirleaf has called on Liberians to continue to focus on the fight to rescue the nation from the Ebola menace.
