President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf says the developmental and other experiences of Indonesia can serve as lesson for Liberia in the achievement of its own development agenda.
President Sirleaf said Liberia and Indonesia have shared exchanges in the Non-Align Movement and has further advanced in its development and other activities, experiences, she said, could be used by Liberia.
Speaking in an interview Thursday following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the establishment of a joint commission for bilateral cooperation between Liberia and Indonesia, President Sirleaf said the signing of the MOU was important because Liberia and Indonesia also share similar geographic and other features.
"This Commission sets the basis; it is the vehicle where the two countries through their representatives can work in those different areas particularly agriculture, trade, cultural, tourism, financial, technology;" Pres. Sirleaf said.
President Sirleaf expressed appreciation to the people of Liberia for the maintenance of peace for the past ten years.
The signing of the agreement followed a bilateral meeting between President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Monrovia yesterday.
