US Envoy Counts GOL’s Progress

MONROVIA, July 6 (LINA) - U.S. Ambassador Deborah Malac has cited freedom, multiple successful elections, peace and stability, and Government’s Agenda for Transformation plan that is making substantial gains as progress made under President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s administration.

She also said just as she has seen progress during her three years in Liberia, it is her hope that even more positive developments are imminent, adding, “The United States stands ready to help Liberians help themselves.”

The US envoy noted Liberia’s fight against the Ebola virus which, she observed, was an unexpected and unprecedented emergency that hit a region with few resources to address the threat.

Malac praised the Liberian President, adding, “Thanks to you, to the hard work of your government, and, most of all, to the grassroots efforts of community organizers, contact tracers, health workers, and the Liberian people – you kicked Ebola out of Liberia!”

The American diplomat said dealing with this extended emergency stalled the Government of Liberia’s broader efforts to improve life for Liberians.

According to an Executive Mansion release, Ambassador Malac, who spoke Thursday, July 2, at programs in observance of the 239th Independence of the United States of America at the Executive Pavilion in Monrovia while celebrating her last U.S. Independence Day in Liberia, recalled U.S.-Liberia relations in good and bad times.

“Long-term success will require the continued development of Liberia’s governance institutions, with transparent accountability, to ensure that the many needed infrastructure, energy, education, and public health projects stay on track, are sustainably funded, and regularly maintained,” Malac emphasized.

To those who are impatient about the pace of change, Ambassador Malac offered these reminders – change is hard work, but many hands make light work.
