( 4, 2015)-President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is urging foreign investors to exhibit fair business practices to enable the worst hit ebola countries achieve their economic goals.

President Johnson-Sirleaf also wants her Guinean and Sierra Leonean counterparts address issues that could hinder smooth business practices.

“Our investing partners must give back more in fair taxes, fair pricing and fair high-level job opportunity.

“In turn, we must do more to create a conducive environment by making it easier to do business and to fight corruption,” she said.

The Liberian Leader welcomed calls by the Economic Commission on Africa for debt cancelation and for direct budgetary support to the three Ebola-affected countries.

She admonished development partners to utilize the country’s systems for the disbursement and the implementation of post-ebola recovery activities.

President Johnson-Sirleaf also called on development partners to renew their commitment to share accountability by giving full disclosure of all resources committed to them for the Ebola fight.

The President noted: “These mechanisms are crucial for revamping the economies of, Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, three of which are suffering from touch economic conditions because of the virus.”
