Pres. Sirleaf Urges Chinese Delegation To Explore Business Prospects
MONROVIA, January 21 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has encouraged the visiting Chinese Trade Delegation to explore prospects of doing business and capitalizing on investment opportunities, particularly in the agro-processing sector.
Making remarks when she received the delegation in Monrovia, President Sirleaf expressed appreciation for the delegation’s visit at “this critical time” when Liberia is reshaping focus on diversification of economic potentials anchored on value addition.
According to an Executive Mansion release, she also expressed delight over the delegation’s visit and informed them that Liberia was ready for doing business.
She recalled the many contributions made by the Chinese government to Liberia and acknowledged the strong ties existing between the two countries.
The Liberian leader said she was optimistic that the projects will get started as soon as possible once all the technical details are concluded.
She then assured the delegation of her government’s support at all times in getting the proposal to a fruitful conclusion.
President Sirleaf appealed to the Chinese to invest in the country’s youthful population as they represent the hope of Liberia.
She also indicated that members of the delegation have identified critical sectors of interest which, she noted, are of great importance not only for the government’s Agenda for Transformation but also the country’s Post-Ebola Economic Stabilization Plan.
She prevailed on the delegation to move around the country in order to appreciate some of the beautiful and scenic sites Liberia has with the view to creating economic possibilities for Liberians.
