Pres. Sirleaf Extols Visit Of Belgian Delegation
By Prince S. Nagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, January 20 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has lauded the Belgian delegation currently visiting the country to revitalize bilateral relations, especially in the areas of trade and commerce.

The Liberian leader recalled that both countries collaborated in the Kimberly Process (KP) in December 2000 in South Africa, when a resolution was adapted to create an international certification scheme to control the production and trade of rough diamonds.

President Sirleaf made the commendation when Belgian Ambassador Hugues
Chantry presented his Letters of Credence to her in the Cabinet Room at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Monrovia on Wednesday.

Ambassador Chantry is part of a joint Belgium-Luxembourg Preparatory Trade and Investment Mission currently visiting the country to explore possibilities of doing business through partnerships with local and state institutions.

President Sirleaf also recounted Belgium’s immense assistance and contribution to Liberia’s Ebola recovery effort and allowing the Brussels Airline to remain operational during the Ebola scourge, when most airlines shut down operations.

For his part, Ambassador Chantry thanked President Sirleaf for the hospitality accorded him and members of his team by the government and people of Liberia and assured her that he will always visit Liberia to ensure that his country’s investment goal is achieved in the country.

The joint Belgium-Luxembourg Preparatory Trade and Investment delegation, which is being led by Belgium’s Minister for Foreign Trade Peter De Crem, is expected to depart the country on Friday following series of meetings and assessment visits.
