Pres. Sirleaf Puts Financing For Development In Proper Perspective

MONROVIA, July 17 (LINA) -The Liberian leader has maintained that Financing For Development must not be seen through the narrow prism of aid, noting that it must also not be construed as gifts that the rich give to the poor.

Speaking at the International Financing For Development Conference held in Addis Ababa recently, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said such financing must encompass mechanisms that bring together the resources from all who benefit from our planet’s endowment.

This is a compact, she said on July 13, that departs from developed to underdeveloped, from north or south but as one humanity with one destiny, stressing that “this is what we want to bequeath to our future generations.”

President Sirleaf pointed out that as a global community the world must find a way to resolve issues of trade, taxes, environment and partnership.

“Much has changed in our world since the Year 2000 when we embarked on the Millennium  Development Goals (MDGs); utilizing the more wealth and knowledge that exists today in our world than ever been,” she stressed.
