(elbcradio.com/June 30, 2015)-Liberia’s Ambassador to the Netherlands, Isaac Nyenabo, has said the Netherlands and West Africa have many shared interests that are cardinal to all stakeholders.

According to a dispatch, Ambassador Nyenabo made the statements in the wake of a high profile Dutch business delegation planned visit to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. 

He said: “The up-coming trade mission will help broaden relationships among stakeholders and will make it easier to discuss more relevant trade matters.”

Ambassador Nyenabo made the statements recently when he presented his letters of credence to the King of the Netherlands, Williem-Alexander in the wake of a Trade Mission of Dutch investors and partners planned visit to Liberia by July 6, 2015.

The Trade Mission’s visit is intended to explore investment possibilities in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

King Williem-Alexander said: “The mission’s objective was to contribute to the economies of the worst-hit Ebola countries and provide jobs for the people.”

The historical relations subsisting between the Netherlands and Liberia date as far back as the 17th Century when the Dutch ship, “White Dog” reached the Liberian coast in 1614.

Upon arrival in the country, the Dutch began informal trade with the inhabitants on the West Coast of Africa.
