Pres. Sirleaf Says AfDB To Support Liberia’s Infrastructure Programs

By Prince S. Nagbe

MONROVIA, Feb 4 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says the African Development Bank (AfDB) has pledged its support to Liberia’s infrastructure development.

She made the disclosure on Monday at the Roberts International Airport upon her return from the African Union (AU) Summit held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

President Sirleaf said Liberia has been selected along with the other three Mano River Union (MRU) countries of Guinea, Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone to benefit from the AfDB development aid.

The decision was contained in the Bank’s Fragile States Report delivered at the just-ended AU summit, according to the Liberia News Agency.

The President said the bank’s decision is aimed at improving Regional Integration Cooperation (RIC) between countries within the Mano River Basin.

She said the bank’s decision to support infrastructure development is also geared towards achieving inter-connectivity of power, well organized transport and telecommunication systems amongst the four MRU countries.

President Sirleaf on Monday returned home from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where she delivered a High Level Panel Report on the African States at the AU Summit.

The Liberian leader also paid a working visit to Malawi upon the invitation of Malawian President Joyce Banda.

While in Malawi, President Sirleaf launched the Malawi Professional Women’s Dialogue at the Bingu International Conference Center in Lilongwe and officially switched on the Kambwiri Rural Electrification Program VII Center.
