New Ghanaian Ambassador accredited to Liberia, Mr. Kodjo A. Wadee has disclosed plans by his country to invest in potential areas within the Liberian economy.
Ambassador Wadee made the disclosure in Monrovia Tuesday when he presented his letter of credence to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
"First of all, I informed Her Excellency President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf that I was happy to be in Liberia. I am happy to continue the work that my predecessor did in Liberia," Mr. Wadee gave his impression to journalists in an interview shortly after the program Tuesday.
"Essentially, during my tenure of duty, I will work to solidify the relationship that exists between Ghana and Liberia. Principally, we will be reactivating our Permanent Joint Commission of Cooperation.
"This will help identify the framework for areas of cooperation that our two sides need to pursue. So, I will be working with officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Liberia and other agencies to see how quickly we can reactivate our Joint Commission," the new Ghanaian envoy stated.
"After reactivating the Joint Commission of both Ghana and Liberia, and haven't identified the projects that we will pursue," Ambassador disclosed that his next target would be to work with agencies in Liberia to see the realization of these projects. This is because, he said, "we need to have a process that will bring concrete products. Also, I am working with my agencies back home to see what areas within the Liberian Economy the Ghanaian economy can invest."
"I am talking about investments that will benefit the people," the Ghanaian diplomat stressed, and assured the public that such discussions would take place with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Liberia Chamber of Commerce and similar institutions.
The move, when taken, Ambassador Wadee noted, would identify the framework for areas of cooperation that the two sides need to pursue. He pledged his commitment to working with officials of the Liberian Foreign sector to achieve his objectives.
"So, I will be working with officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Liberia and other agencies to see how quickly we can reactivate our Joint Commission" Ambassador Wadee promised.
