The signing ceremony with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the Minister of Finance and Development Planning, as National Authorising Office (NAO) of the EDF, Amara Konneh, took place at the High-level International Conference on Ebola.

Commissioner Mimica said: “Today’s signature marks a new step forward in EU’s commitment with Liberia to promote stability and reconciliation as well as to promote equitable and inclusive development.”
