The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of China Union Investment in Bong Mines, Lee Zhi Xiang, has reaffirmed his company’s commitment to remain fully engaged with the people of Liberia despite the numerous challenges being faced by the company.
Xiang said his company intends to implement more development projects through its community empowerment programs, but regretted that it is currently unable to do so due to the current financial difficulties the company is facing.
The China Union CEO made the statement in Bong Mines, Fuamah District, lower Bong County over the weekend at a one-day Community Engagement Activity.
He assured citizens of the district that China Union will undertake numerous development initiatives in the various communities within its concession area in an effort to foster peaceful coexistence with the community.
Xiang stressed that though the company will not ignore the many challenges it is faced with, it will at all times remain engaged in developmental activities in order to better the lives of the people of Fuamah in particular and Bong County in general.
In response, Fuamah District Commissioner Hampton Giddings thanked the management of China Union for the assurance and admonished the company’s management team to increase its development projects in the district as the financial crisis improves.
Giddings noted that constant engagement will bring the company closer to the people, and will help dispel the negative perception some people have about the company.
