MONROVIA-A new policy outlining strict procedures for granting aliens work permit in Liberia takes effect today.

Labor Minister Neto Lighe said: “The policy seeks to regulate the participation of non-Liberians in the job market and the policy will also ensure   that aliens occupy the rightful positions.”

Minister Lighe, spoke to ELBC Monday, January 16, 2017, said the new policy will ensure that aliens and non-Liberians in the country get permit before their arrival in the country.

The Labor Minister disclosed that more Liberians are not participating in the Liberian economy, either because of the lack of skills, if not the relevant institutions will be compelled to train them.

He noted that the same benefits given expatriates   should be given to Liberians.
