Ex-German Prexy Says VOITH Ties Will Propel Growth In Liberia

MONROVIA, June 8 (LINA) – Ex-German President and former International Monetary Fund Managing Director, Dr. Horst Kohler believes the partnership between VOITH and Liberia to rehabilitate the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant will help eradicate poverty and propel growth in Liberia.

Dr. Kohler said Africa is the new ''potential hub'' for global development and productivity and noted that Liberia has an important role in that growth, adding that job creation for young Africans is important and must be supported by all.

He said the German business community and manufacturers are prepared to ensure that a new long-time engagement is started with the production of local produce on the continent of Africa and a new paradigm to be drawn in a global partnership that promotes that new spirit of a win-win situation by all.

He praised Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for the level of development and peace she has restored to her country and her role at the UN High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda that brings hope to the people of Liberia and the world.

According to a dispatch from Munich, Germany, President Sirleaf and delegation were taken on a tour of the company's facilities, manufacturing plant, laboratories and training school.

Members of the President Sirleaf’s delegation included Lands, Mines and Energy Minister Patrick Sendolo, Liberia's Ambassador to Germany, Ambassador Ethel Davis, Board Chairman of the Liberia Electricity Corporation, Ian Yhap and Deputy Chief of Staff/President’s Delivery Unit, Dr. Clarence Moniba.

The President is in Germany to attend the 41st Summit meeting of the Heads of State and Government of the Group of Seven (G-7) nations.

The summit takes place from June 7 -8 and will discuss the global economy, trade, security, development policy and foreign affairs.

The summit will also look at the upcoming UN Conferences and the UN Post-2015 Agenda.
