( 11, 2015)-The Liberian Delegation to the 38th Session of UNESCO has concluded talks with several stakeholders in the Information, Culture and Tourism Sector in Paris, France.

During the talks, Deputy Information Minister, Isaac Jackson, and Assistant Information Minister for Culture, Louise McMillan, appealed to UNESCO’s Culture Heritage Section to send some experts to Liberia.

Ministers Jackson and McMillan said the experts will assist in setting up a proper inventory of all the artifacts in Liberia for appropriate record-keeping.

They also appealed to UNESCO for training opportunities for personnel of the Liberia National Police, Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) and Customs.

They said training of police, BIN and Customs personnel will prevent illicit exportation of culture properties from the country.

In a related development, the Liberian Delegation held discussion with the Director of the Division of Freedom of Expression and Media Development, Communication and Information, Guy Berger.

During their discussion, they informed Mr. Berger about progress made in Liberia on press freedom and free expression under the Johnson-Sirleaf-led administration.
