“Liberia Post-Ebola Recovery Plan On Track”, Pres. Sirleaf

By Prince S. Nagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, September 30 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has told world leaders that Liberia is now proceeding with its Post-Ebola Economic Stabilization and Recovery Plan.

She said this is made possible by the support of bilateral and multilateral partners through the formulation of a regionally-approved Post-Ebola Recovery Strategy for the three most-affected countries of the Mano River Union, including Guinea and Sierra Leone.

According to a dispatch from the Liberian Mission, President Sirleaf made the statement when she addressed the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly held at the UN Headquarters in New York on Tuesday, September 29.

“Undoubtedly, the Ebola scourge leaves indelible marks of grief, sorrow and unimaginable affliction but it has also caused us to celebrate heartwarming tales of extraordinary courage and leadership across governments and communities as well as exceptional regional and international cooperation,” she told the global body.

President Sirleaf noted that the governments of the three worst-hit Ebola countries are determined to address the development losses caused by the outbreak of the virus, including rebuilding better and more resilient health and education systems.

She lauded UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who, in partnership with the three countries and with support from the African Development Bank, the African Union, European Union and the World Bank hosted the International Conference on Post-Ebola Recovery.
