Pres. Sirleaf Meets Top American Investors

MONROVIA, February 25 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has been meeting with Pam Darwin and Walter Kansteiner, Vice President and Senior Director of ExxonMobil Corporation.

During the meeting Wednesday, the President will press for more exploratory activities from ExxonMobil as well as downstream support for Liberian businesses as part of the post-Ebola recovery efforts.

Immediately thereafter, the President and delegation will hold talks with Elizabeth Littlefield, President of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC),

according to a dispatch from Information Minister Lewis Brown in the U.S.

The meeting with OPIC presents an opportunity to discuss the relationship with OPIC and explore specific areas of support to Liberia.

OPIC is crucial in the implementation of the U.S. Administration's Power Africa Program and supports private sector-led development and recovery.

President Sirleaf arrived in the United States on a three-day official visit yesterday and will meet with President Barack Obama on Friday at the White House.

Ahead of that meeting, the Liberian leader will address an event on the Capitol Hill and meet with Secretary John Kerry at the Department of State.

The President's official delegation includes Ambassador Jeremiah Sulunteh,  Finance and Development Planning Minister Amara Konneh and Information Minister Lewis Brown.
