Ghana Ready To Share Development Experiences With Liberia – VP Bawumia

Ghana is ready to share her development experiences with Liberia and will be willing to lend a hand to her West African neighbour, as Liberia seeks to move on from the devastating war decades ago.

The ties between Ghana and Liberia will also be strengthened as the two nations explore ways to share knowledge and help meet the aspirations of their citizens.

The Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia made these commitments when the Vice President of Liberia, Jewel Cianeh Howard Taylor, paid a courtesy call on him at the Jubilee House, Accra on Monday 17th April, 2018.

Citing the challenges the Nana Akufo-Addo government faced when it assumed office about 15 months ago and the strides made since then, Vice President Bawumia assured Jewel Taylor that her country’s fortunes could be turned around with dedication and hard work.

“Issues such as stabilising the macro economy, restoring business confidence and making the education curriculum relevant to the needs of the people of Liberia are key”, Vice President Bawumia stated, adding “ensuring value addition to agricultural products and a policy of infrastructure development and industrialisation would also go a long way to provide jobs for the youth.”

On her part, Jewel Taylor indicated she and her team are in Ghana to learn from Ghana’s experiences and share ideas on how to develop Liberia and the subregion as a whole.

They would also explore the possibility of engaging the services of retired Ghanaian doctors and teachers to help strengthen the capacity of Liberian institutions, according to the Liberian Vice President.

Jewel Taylor expressed the gratitude of Liberians for Ghana’s assistance during the war period and even after, when a large number of refugees were hosted at the Buduburam camp in the Central Region, declaring, “Ghana has become like home to us.”
