Ngafuan Upbeat With India’s Planned Role In Energy Sector

MONROVIA, July 10 (LINA) - Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan has applauded the Indian Government for planning to intervene in the energy sector to help address “power deficit in Liberia.”

Ngafuan made the statement on Monday, July 6, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Monrovia, when the Indian Ambassador to Liberia, Mr. Dinesh Bhatia, donated 300 pieces of thermometers and six bilateral scholarships to the Government and people of Liberia.

According to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs release, the scholarships are for deserving Liberian students to undergo post-graduate studies in India.

He thanked India for the bilateral scholarships and support provided the JFK Medical Center and stated that the Indian assistance would enhance health services at the nation’s highest referral hospital.

“Liberians are very excited about Indian scholarships and short-term training,” he added.   

Minister Ngafuan also lauded the Government and people of India for the donation, including their contributions to Liberia’s Ebola crisis and its post-Ebola recovery drive.

He stressed that though Liberia was declared Ebola-transmission free by the World Health Organization (WHO) in May, but with the new outbreak, the country is developing its health capacity to deal with future outbreaks.

Meanwhile, Minister Ngafuan has disclosed that Liberia is considering reopening its mission in India, but did not mention when.
