( Nov.12, 2013) Liberia has been selected to serve as Co-Chair on the Interim Board that would set up the proposed African Cabinet Government Network Structure (ACGN).

The ACGN’s establishment is being funded by the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID).
The Network comprises three African countries, including Liberia, Sierra Leone and South Sudan.

It is a three-year pilot program to be supervised by Adam Smith International and chaired by Sierra Leone and South Sudan.

The ACGN is aimed at building the capacity of 12 African Government Cabinet Secretariats to better implement national policies and development goals.

Five other African countries, including Rwanda, Malawi, Ghana, Somaliland and Ethiopia have expressed interest in joining the Network.

Meanwhile, Cabinet Director General, Momo Rogers said: “The Network will speed up the process, already underway, to improve the current performance of the Liberian Cabinet.”

“It will also give support to members of the Cabinet to help them consider complex policy proposals and seek advice where necessary on technical issues,” Dr. Rogers noted.
