LOWER MARGIBI COUNTY, LIBERIA-President George Manneh Weah said the Government of Chine is strongly considering an appeal from the Liberian Government to develop the Country’s Agriculture sector.

President Weah said he made the appeal when he met with Chinese President, Xi Jinping, at the just ended China-Africa Summit in Beijing.

He also said:” My participation in the summit afforded me the opportunity to re-strengthen my Government’s relationship with the Chinese Government and people, and I reaffirmed my Administration’s commitment to the One-China Policy.”

Speaking Sunday upon arrival at the Roberts International Airport in Margibi County, the Liberian Leader described Liberia’s participation in the China-Africa Cooperation Forum as successful and rewarding.

He further noted that he maintains his promises to the Liberian people during the 2017 Elections to develop the nation for the common good of the people.

The Liberian Chief Executive said besides the Fifty-four Million United States Dollar grant given Liberia by China, other stakeholders  made commitments to help improve the Country’s agriculture, education and infrastructure sectors.
