Pres. Sirleaf Delighted At Progress In Energy Sector

MONROVIA, October 25 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has expressed delight at progress made in Liberia’s energy sector, including finishing works being done on the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant.

The Liberian leader recalled that the U.S. Government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and Liberian government worked cordially and diligently to reach the MCC Compact, which made possible strong support to the hydro project and other areas including the roads.

“It has been a long journey and Liberians have waited for this day and are very excited about meeting the December 2016 timeline for the completion of the hydro,” President Sirleaf pointed out.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the statement Monday when she received in audience a high-power delegation from the MCC led by its Chief Executive Officer Madam Dana Hyde.

President Sirleaf welcomed Madam Hyde and delegation to Liberia.

In remarks, CEO Hyde thanked President Sirleaf for receiving the MCC delegation and noted that Liberia’s road towards eligibility for MCC Compact was long.

She informed President Sirleaf that data available for the upcoming score-card of the MCC for 2016 shows that Liberia has made progress in many areas.

“This represents good news for the country. The MCC is very focused on the next year and is also keen on the financial viability of the energy sector. We will support the new management team that will be the fruit of the transition that is expected in the energy sector and the Liberia Electricity Corporation,” Hyde noted.

She pointed out that her delegation will pay a visit at the site of the hydro project to see first-hand the progress that has been made and thanked the Government of Liberia for keeping the focus and “realizing the bigger dream for the energy sector.”

The MCC Chief Executive Officer also expressed support for the maintenance of roads in Liberia through the Road Fund being established by the Liberian Government.
