By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, March 19 (LINA) -The president of the Atlanta-based Global Alliance Company (GAC), John Sock, has expressed interest in investing in onion farming in Liberia.

He said his company has decided to use Grand Cape Mount County for the project based on the agreement reached between his management and the Superintendent of the County, Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe, when he recently visited the United States of America (USA).

The visiting African-American businessman made told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday in Robertsport that under the agreement, the leadership of the County will provide 5,000 acres of farm land for the project.

He said a team of soil experts are expected in the country shortly to carryout soil feasibility study in the county to identify the ideal area for the project.

The American businessman said over 2,000 Liberians, mainly Cape Mountainians, will benefit from employment opportunities to be provided by the company when the project kicks off.

Earlier, Superintendent Paasewe expressed gratitude to the management of Global Alliance Company for their decision to invest in the county.

He said such an investment will contribute to national economic recovery as well as reduce the high unemployment in the country.

Superintendent Paasewe said his administration will continue to lobby the international community, local and international organizations to proffer incentives to invest in the county to create more job opportunities for the citizens.
