Upper Darby, USA (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Superintendent Mohammed Paasewe says his administration will prioritize the interest of the county in all negotiations for potential investment in the county.
He says although his administration will continue to form partnerships with potential investors, the interest of the county and its people will remain paramount during any investment negotiations.
According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), Mr. Paasewe was speaking recently at a dinner tendered for him and his assistant for development, Mrs. Tenneh Kpadebah, by the National Association of Cape Mountainians in the Americas (NACA) at the residence of Gardea and Massa Woodson in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.
Mr. Paasewe was in the United States to negotiate a sister-county relationship between Cape Mount and Toombs County in Georgia while Mrs. Kpadebah was in the country to attend the annual convention of NACA.
Mr. Paasewe disclosed that many potential investors were expressing interest in doing business in the county, and cited a Dubai-based company that has expressed interest in opening a resort in Tombey Chiefdom.
He also informed his fellow Cape Mountainians that former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo currently owns a poultry farm in the county capable of producing eggs for the entire country. He said the farm provides job opportunities for residents of the county.
On infrastructural development in the county, Mr. Paasewe said over 30 projects were completed last year when the county jointly hosted celebrations of Liberia’s Independence Day with Bomi and Gbarpolu Counties.
In remarks, a member of the NACA Board, Mr. Clarence Paasewe, assured the Superintendent of the Association’s cooperation in addressing the needs of the county.
