Liberia: Foreign Diplomats Exalt Vision 2030

Members of the Diplomatic Corps here have made know the commitments of their respective governments to supporting the successful implementation of National Vision 2030.

A huge presence of ambassadors and foreign development partners was observed during the just ended three days National Vision 2030 conference held in Gbarnga, Bong County from 10-12 December 2012.

They attended every plenary session from start to end including the night session of Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at which time delegates unanimously adopted a five page document, otherwise known as National Vision 2030.

Speaking on behalf of her boss, the United Nations (UN) Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) Assistant SRSG Esperance Fondera assured Liberians of the UN's fullest commitment to supporting the initiative to the end.

Attributing their attendance to the conference despite its remote venue to the nine years of peace that Liberians have upheld, the UNMIL ASRSG noted that peace and justice are an inevitable foundation for development in any nation.

The Sierra Leonean Ambassador, Reverend Dr. Marie Jilo Barnett, told The Analyst in Gbarnga last week: "As a member of the Mano River Union (MRU), it is expedient to be a part of this history making event. My colleagues and I presence here these few days, afford us the opportunity to advance better recommendations to our respective governments so as to help Africa oldest Republic rise again."
