EC Allots 100 Million Euros For Liberia’s Energy Sector

The head of a four-man European Commission (EC) delegation currently visiting Liberia, Dr. Klaus Rudischhauser, says the Commission has allotted 100 million Euros for Liberia to boost its energy and other sectors.

Dr. Rudischhauser, who is the Deputy Director General for Policy and Thematic Coordination at the European Commission, said the EC and the Liberian Government have not yet concluded on the offer.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Dr. Rudischhauser made the disclosure Friday in an interview with a team of journalists at the Ministry of Lands Mines and Energy on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

He told journalists that the money will be disbursed over seven years, and will be directed toward improving Liberia’s energy sector and other initiatives to be identified by the Liberian Government.

In remarks, Lands, Mines and Energy Minister Dr. Patrick Sendolo expressed gratitude to the European Commission delegation and lauded the EC for allocating the 100 million Euros to war-ravished Liberia.

He said the offer coincides with the Liberian President’s plan to perform a ground-breaking ceremony for the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant next week.
