Amb. Zhang Promises China’s Continued Aid To Liberia  

By Robert Dixon, LINA

MONROVIA, May 12 (LINA) -The Chinese Ambassador to Liberia, Zhang Yue, says as “a reliable partner and friend,” China will continue to stand by Liberia in its post-Ebola rebuilding process.

He noted that in the field of health, China will assign more medical experts to the Tappita Hospital in Nimba County, provide technical training, experience exchange and collaborative research so as to help Liberia restore and improve its public healthcare.

The Chinese envoy gave the assurance Tuesday at a ceremony marking the handover to the Liberian Government of the Chinese-run Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in the Monrovia suburb of Congo Town and groundbreaking for renovation work on the Samuel K. Doe Sports Stadium in Paynesville City outside Monrovia.

“Our experience in the past three decades taught us that development is fundamental for any nation,” the Chinese diplomat observed, noting that nothing can be firmly established without strong economic growth and a sound public health system.

He said as “a friend and development partner,” the Chinese people stayed in Liberia during “those very difficult days” and will cooperate in areas like agriculture, education, infrastructure and manufacturing, among others, in the post-Ebola era.

The Chinese envoy said with the launch of the renovation of the S.K.D. Stadium, other Chinese projects, like the Ministerial Complex, annexes to the Capitol Building and the Monrovia Vocational Training Center, will get a boost.

Ambassador Zhang said the SKD Sport Stadium, which was constructed by the Chinese in the 1980s, is a symbol of China-Liberia friendship and a witness to the enhanced China-Liberia partnership.

Speaking at the turnover, President Elen Johnson Sirleaf thanked the Chinese for their role in the fight against the Ebola virus which, she said, was a major contributor to the victory over the disease.

Meanwhile, Ambassador Zhang has congratulated President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the Liberian Government and people for the victory over the Ebola Virus Disease.

He noted that the victory can be attributed also to international cooperation.

Envoy Zhang saluted the medical team of the People’s Liberation Army that rendered medical care to hundreds of patients and saved six of the 10 confirmed Ebola patients.

The Chinese envoy disclosed that the Chinese medical teams and experts trained nearly 6,000 local people, including professional health workers.
