VP Boakai Receives Chinese Trade Delegation 

MONROVIA, August 5 (LINA) - Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has hailed the relationship between Liberia and the Peoples Republic of China.

He also spoke of the rising level of economic cooperation that could bring the two peoples closer and boost economic prosperity between the two nations.

Vice President Boakai said in recent times he has seen a lot of cooperation between the two countries, including the role of China in the fight against the Ebola virus.

He made the remarks Wednesday when a 13-man Chinese business delegation, accompanied by Liberia’s Ambassador to China, McKinley Thomas and Chinese Ambassador to Liberia, Zhang Yue, paid a courtesy call on him at his Capitol Building Office.

The delegation, including representatives of some of China’s top companies, is in the country to explore the possibility of investing in mining, power, engineering, fruit processing, and rail transport, solar and wind energy and mineral exploration, among others.

Vice President Boakai stressed that unless the natural resources of a country are exploited for the benefit of the people, the people will continue to live in poverty.

He noted that this is the largest Chinese business delegation he has hosted and hoped that something good can come out this visit.

He admonished the two envoys and line ministries holding talks with the delegation to ensure that the visit yields the desired benefits for both Liberia and China.

The visit of the Chinese business delegation is a forerunner to the visit of the Chinese Foreign Minister to Liberia in the coming days, according to a press release from the Vice President’s Office.
