Liberian Leader Meets with Liberian Entrepreneurs

Monrovia, Liberia – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has held a meeting with Liberian entrepreneurs recognizing some of their short comings and how government can provide support for them to excel.
 
“Government understands some of the issues and will give you the needed support to be able to succeed,” she promised.
 
According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader made the comments when she met with an array of businesspersons at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ C. Cecil Dennis Auditorium on Friday, September 4, 2015.
 
She indicated that a major problem hampering the development of Liberian entrepreneurs is the economy largely dominated by foreigners. She stressed that both government and entrepreneurs lack capital; but more importantly highlighted that some entrepreneurs’ lack management skills, markets, technology, enhancement, and integrity.
 
“We recognize those shortcomings on both sides,” the Liberian leader said, urging them to work with government to address those issues so that they can have a bigger space in the market.
 
A frank and candid interactive forum ensued with the Liberian entrepreneurs advancing a number of recommendations to government; while a follow-up meeting is expected to convene shortly.
