Britain Renews Commitment To Liberia’s Growth

MONROVIA, December 6 (LINA) – The British Minister for Africa at the Department for International Development (DFID), James Wharton, has reaffirmed his government's commitment to Liberia’s development drive under a healthy climate of open and democratic governance.

He also re-committed the British Government’s support for Liberia post-Ebola economic reordering with a central focus on value-addition.

Mr. Wharton was speaking during a meeting with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf recently in London, according to a dispatch sent by the Liberian delegation.

He referenced the lead role of the British Ambassador accredited near Monrovia, David Belgrove, in coordinating support for Liberia’s agricultural transformation program.

Minister Wharton also emphasized his government's role in concert with the global community in deepening Liberia’s democratic system with support to the 2017 elections.

Wharton then emphasized that President Sirleaf has set a shining example by her commitment to keeping within the term limits of the Liberian Constitution.

In remarks, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has said the continued partnership of the British Government in helping Liberia's development is strategic.

She spoke of the ongoing “critical push” for the UK to absorb the US$20 million funding gap in the proposed Ganta to Saclepae stretch of the country’s ongoing road connectivity aimed at linking Liberia’s growth corridors.

She informed British Government officials that a concentrated pool fund of donor partner has been mobilized and that focuses on roads and other infrastructural projects, which are pivotal to unlocking Liberia’s growth potential.

President Sirleaf asserted that Liberia’s relentless drive is to connect the country, deliver greater power generation, as well as give agriculture the ultimate lift as Liberia’s most productive economic pathway.
