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),
