MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor has hailed the Government of the People’s Republic of China for accepting Liberia under its One Road Policy.

China’s Belt and Road Initiative is a global development strategy involving infrastructure development and investments in 152 countries and international organizations.

Vice President Taylor’s commendation to China came when the Liberian and Chinese Governments dedicated the Ministerial Complex in Congo Town.

Speaking at the dedicatory program Thursday, July 24, 2019, Vice President Taylor said the Complex signifies a special relationship between China and Liberia.

Vice President Taylor paid special tribute to former President Ellen John-Sirleaf for initiating the project during her administration.

Meanwhile, the Special Envoy of the Chinese Government, Ambassador Zhou Yu Xiao, has assured of China’s continued support to Liberia’s revitalization efforts.

Ambassador Xiao said:” China would support the Liberian Government’s Pro-Poor Agenda, while expanding cooperation in the areas of infrastructure, agriculture health and others.”

He said his Country is committed to helping Liberia reap the opportunities from the partnership between the two countries.
Ambassador Xiao outlined other infrastructure assistance to Liberia, including the University of Liberia Fendell Campus, Jackson F.Doe Memorial Hospital, the annexes of the Capitol among others.

The Chinese Envoy has, meanwhile, expressed optimism that under the leadership of President George Weah, Liberia will see more political stability, fast economic growth, best living conditions and a brighter future.
