Rep. Kanneh Urges Liberians To Sustain Peace
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, March 12 (LINA) -The Co-Chair of the House of Representatives on Investment and Concession, Sekou Kanneh has underscored the need for Liberians to contribute to the sustenance of the prevailing peace in the country, to attract more investors.

Representative Sekou noted that businessmen are interested in investing in the economy when there is stability, and as such, it is incumbent upon Liberians to protect the peace being enjoyed after 14 years of conflict, if they are to succeed in efforts aimed at reconstructing their country.

He told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday during the Monrovia Stakeholder Roundtable Consultations on the Draft Petroleum Act and the Draft National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) Act of 2013 in Paynesville, Representative Sekou described the current investment atmosphere of Liberia as conducive.

He said more foreign investors continue to express interest in investing in the country nowadays, attributing the situation to the10 years of unfettered peace following the end of the war.

The Montserrado County Representative indicated that although the impact of the level of investment in the post-war economy of Liberia might be slow now, it will be felt positively in the long run as the signs are encouraging.

He, however, pointed out that more needs to be done in order to get the majority of the Liberian people, particularly the young people, to contribute their quota to the reconstruction of their country.

He hoped that when consultations on the Draft Petroleum Act and the NOCAL Act of 2013 are concluded and the Bills are passed into law, more employment opportunities would have been created, thereby reducing the high unemployment rate in the country.
