Liberians Hail China

China has been topped as Liberia's developmental partner for 2012 for her developmental role in the infrastructure development, building of roads and the rehabilitation of Liberia's only sports complex, the Samuel Kenyan Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville.

According to many Liberians, China deserves to some extent an applaud for her numerous contributions made in the areas of better food prospects in the Agricultural Technology Demonstrated Center at the Central Agricultural Research Institute (CARI) in Suakoko, Bong County, better health prospects in the new Jackson Fiah Doe Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County which for the first time in the history of Liberia has been a referral Hospital to be built in that part of the country to help curtail the many challenges people in the south eastern part of Liberia are faced with.

Other developmental areas captured by the Chinese Government are better education in Liberia with the revamping of the State-owned higher Institution, the University of Liberia Campus at Fendell, that has reduced the low educational capacity of Liberia and the need to expand the facilities of that higher Institution of learning in Liberia and infrastructure-wise, is one of the best in the sub-region in terms of private corporate relations.

Also, there are roads and bridge projects undertaken by various Chinese Engineering Companies, CICO and CHICO, including the construction of the King Zulu Durmah Bridge and the multi-billion dollar investment of China Union.

The Liberians, mainly youths from various Liberian Universities said the People's Republic of China in December of 2012 resolved to impact the lives of hundreds of young Liberians at a ceremony which was witnessed by many Liberians at the Chinese Embassy.

At that ceremony CPAFFC donated 20 laptops, stationeries among other things to some Liberian students from various Liberian counties which was worth about US$.25, 000, 00.
