Liberia: High Level Panel Meeting Begins

British Prime Minister David Cameron and the President of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono are expected in the country today. The two leaders along with other international guests will participate in the High Level Panel (HLP) on the Post-2015 Development Agenda in Monrovia, Liberia.

The meeting of the HLP will take place from 30 January to February 2, 2013 on the theme: "National building blocks for sustained prosperity".

World leaders and other international guests are due this morning to participate in the three days event. British Prime Minister David Cameron, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia and President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf are co-chairs of the High Level Panel of eminent persons. It also includes leaders from civil society, private sector and government.

The Monrovia meeting will seek amongst other priorities, to discuss debate and refine a narrative document, which will set out a vision for future development.

The document will be based on the Panel's responses to the framing questions, including the Co-Chair's paper.

The document identifies the key challenges facing economic growth and transformation and the national-level building blocks required to achieve sustained prosperity.

The meeting will also identify how the outcome of the Monrovia gathering will feed into the fourth HLP meeting in Bali, Indonesia in March 2013 and into the final HLP report.
