(,2015)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf is requesting more Exxon Mobil Corporation’s exploratory activities and downstream support for Liberian businesses.

President Johnson-Sirleaf wants Exxon Mobil’s support to Liberian businesses as part of the country’s post-Ebola recovery efforts.

She made the request Wednesday, February 25, 2015 when she met with Exxon Mobil Corporation’s Vice President, Pam Darwin, and the company’s Senior Director, Walter Kansteiner, in Washington D.C., the United States. 

According to a dispatch from the U.S, the President and delegation will also hold talks with the President of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), Elizabeth Littlefield.

The dispatch said President Johnson-Sirleaf’s meeting with Mrs. Littlefield will present an opportunity to discuss the relationship with OPIC and explore specific areas for the company’s support to Liberia.

“OPIC is crucial in the implementation of the U.S. Administration's Power Africa Program and it supports private sector-led development and recovery,” it further noted.

The Liberian Leader arrived in the United States Tuesday on a three-day official visit and she will meet with President Barack Obama at the White House Friday.

She will address an event on Capitol Hill, and later meet with Secretary of State, John Kerry, at the U.S. State Department, ahead of her meeting with the two senior officials of Exxon Mobil Corporation.
