MONROVIA, August 22 (LINA) -Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai has assured foreign investors that the Liberian Government will protect foreign investments in the country at all cost.
He stated that the protection of foreign investments is crucial to the socio-economic development of Liberia and its people.
The Liberian Vice President made the statement Friday when he dedicated a US$5 million cooking gas plant of the Nexium Petroleum Liberia Limited held at the Old LPRC Compound in Gardnerville outside Monrovia.
He stressed that it is critical for Sierra Leonean companies to invest in Liberia to further strengthen integration and collaboration between the two countries.
Ambassador Boakai indicated that government remains committed to protecting investments as long as the law of Liberia is respected and adhered to.
Vice President Boakai emphasized that foreign investments will provide taxes to government and jobs for Liberians, but Liberian workers must be dedicated and committed to duty.
