MONROVIA, October 22 (LINA) -Vice President Joseph N. Boakai currently in Atlanta, Georgia on a visit, has been meeting with corporate giants and other institutions Center in pursuit of Liberia’s interest and the enhancement of

A dispatch from Atlanta said at the Delta World Headquarters, the Vice President updated the Airlines Management on recent developments in Liberia relative to the containment of the Ebola Virus Disease and the emerging favorable operating climate for airlines.

In talks at the Morehouse School of Medicine, the Vice President articulated the devastation brought upon the country by the Ebola Virus and outlined areas of need in the country's healthcare delivery system.

Another key highlight of the Vice President's visit was his presence at a dinner hosted in his honor by Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill, where he made a compelling case for help in the security sector, particularly given the ongoing UNMIL draw down.
