MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Government of the People’s Republic of China says it is about time for Liberia to think about strengthening the existing relationship between the two countries.

President Zhang Yue described the recent Liberia election as peaceful, saying the CDC led Government will experience a new era from China prioritizing the needs of its citizens through livelihood.

The Chinese Ambassador made the statement on January 12, 2018, at a one-day symposium with more than thirty Liberian journalists in attendance.

Speaking on the topic, Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, Ambassador Zhang said China has initiated new development strategies that help the Country from quantity to quality.

He also said:” China is not imposing ideas on other countries, but Liberia can learn a lot more from China whose leadership took the people of China from poverty to success.”

The Chinese Ambassador further noted that China is standing along with developing countries that are spending too much money on their development processes, but are getting little or no returns ,unlike developing countries whose spending are based on a 50,50 deal.

Ambassador Zhang said that Liberia has less population, more resources, but poor economy.

The Chinese Ambassador then urged journalists to tell Liberians that though China is miles away from Liberia; both countries have similarities, urging the CDC led Government to implement the laws of Liberia without fear or favor.

Also speaking at the symposium, Senior Reporter, Nicholas Nimely, urged the Liberian Government to emulate China’s module.

Mr. Nimely observed that the secret behind China’s development is nationalism, and expressed the need for the incoming Government to strengthen bilateral relations between China and Liberia.

He thanked the Chinese Government and people for the opportunity given Liberians to hugely benefit from China Aid in all areas of the Liberian society.
