MONROVIA-The Liberian Government is currently holding the planned cabinet and Economic Management Team meeting on the recent business community go-slow of business activities in Monrovia.

The meeting is expected to address the concerns of the business community and Liberians experiencing economic difficulties, which gave rise to the recent strike initiated by the Patriotic Entrepreneurs of Liberia.

Presidential Press Secretary, Jerelimek Piah, on February 2, 2017 said that the decision to reschedule the meeting was due to the absence of the Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Boima Kamara.

Minister Kamara was in Western Liberia on an important government assignment and was unavailable for the Thursday appointment.
