Pres. Sirleaf Nudges Liberian Businesses To Be Innovative

By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, June 16 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has challenged Liberian entrepreneurs to be innovative and efficient in their business ventures.

She also told Liberian business owners to make honesty and integrity their hallmark to enhance the growth and development of their businesses.    

Speaking Monday on behalf of the Liberian leader at the dedication of six newly- acquired dump trucks by LIBRA Sanitation Incorporated in Monrovia, Assistant Minister at the Ministry of State Mohammed S. Kromah said government has created an enabling environment for Liberian businesses to flourish alongside their foreign counterparts.

In remarks at the program, the Chief Executive officer of Libra Sanitation, George Howe, said the equipment which cost more than US$500,000 will ensure that garbage in Monrovia and its environs will be collected from dumpsites on time to keep the city clean.

Howe indicated that the trucks, which were purchased through a partnership with Ever Green Import and Export, will go a long way in strengthening the country’s sanitation industry.

Howe pointed out that Liberians have the skills and expertise required to effectively and efficiently operate businesses, but noted that they need the support of central government to improve and advance their entities.
