Pres. Sirleaf Exempts LWSC From Duties On Certain Products

MONROVIA, August 3 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has issued Executive Order No. 72, extending and expanding Executive Order No. 57 exempting the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) from customs duties on certain products.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the products are diesel fuel for operations and production; routable and consumable spares for operation;  low lift and high lift pumps for the Water Treatment Plant; water treatment chemicals and chlorinators; and laboratory apparatus for water treatment facilities (White Plains and Outstations).

Others are heavy duty equipment to include Asphalt Cutter, Jack Hammer, Backhoe, Excavator, Directional Drill, Water Meters, Sectional Sewer Rudder,
Leak Detectors, Valves (air relief, surge and line), pressure sewer cleaner and high pressure assorted pipes and fittings; and  flow meter.

The Executive Order further states that in the interest of national development and reconstruction, the need still exists to exempt the LWSC from custom duty on fuel, equipment and related items for the operation of the LWSC’s water treatment plant and for the delivery of water and sewer services.

Executive Order No. 72 stresses that LWSC is a wholly-owned entity of the Government charged with ensuring the provision of water and sewerage services for the population; while Government seeks to ensure that policies and institutions for water supply and sanitation services delivery, as well as for water resources development and management, respond effectively to needs and priorities of the population.

This Executive Order takes effect immediately, the release added.
