President Sirleaf Throws Light On Trip Abroad

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe, LINA

MPONROVIA, September 17(LINA) -President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has told the House of Representatives that her current trip abroad is “unduly” long because the activities to which she committed are interspersed.

“This will, in effect, provide me with a few days of rest which I have not had over the years and which I need for rejuvenation as we prepare for the challenges of the dry season,” Sirleaf indicated.

According to her, the dry season challenges include robust action to conclude ongoing projects and attract new people-friendly inclusive investments.

The President’s statement was contained in a letter to House Speaker J. Alex Tyler, dated September 13, 2015 and read in Session Thursday, in which she officially informed the Lower House about her trip abroad from September 16 through October 5.

The Liberian leader disclosed that the trip include meetings with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and other women leaders in Berlin that will focus on improvement in health systems.

She informed the body that the Deputy Minister of Health for Planning and Pastor Ophelia Beh Ghartey of the Christ Kingdom Harvest Church Orphanage who administers to Ebola orphans in Liberia will accompany her.

Chief Executive Sirleaf added that the longest section of the trip will involve numerous meetings at the United Nations General Assembly as she concludes her international assignment relating to the New Global Agenda.

“As this is a long but important trip, I would be pleased, Mr. Speaker, to have any member of the National Legislature, who is in the United States during the period, to join me in the series of conferences and side meetings, several directly relevant to Liberia,” she pointed out.
