Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has declared that Liberia is destined for greatness evidenced by the investment it has witnessed over the years.
Ambassador Boakai said when the more than US$16 billion investments begin full operation, Liberia will experience rapid development.
The Vice President spoke over the weekend when he dedicated the offices of a new construction company, Atlantic Construction Group Incorporated (ACGI), located on the Old Road in Monrovia. The company is jointly owned by Liberians and Togolese. Ambassador Boakai said government is confident that Liberia will rise and become a success story in Africa. He said Liberia has huge potentials for investment.
He lauded ACGI for opening its offices in Liberia, which he said, demonstrates confidence in the government. Ambassador Boakai assured the company of government's protection and cooperation during its operation here. He believes the company's operation will create jobs for Liberians.
Earlier, the President of the Board of ACGI Madam Juliette G. T. Alindgo expressed excitement to invest in Liberia.
Madam Alindgo said her company is pleased to come to Liberia and participate in the rebuilding process of the war wrecked-nation. She said ACGI has the expertise in the construction of roads and public infrastructures.
Madam Alindgo said though ACGI does not have any contract now, but it decided to make its presence felt in Liberia by opening its offices. She said Liberia is blessed and will soon begin to experience God's favor.
For his part, the head of the ACGI in Liberia, Jacob Kabakollie said he's glad to partner with Madam Alindgo to launch ACGI in Liberia.
He said rather than partnering with companies from America and Europe, he decided to partner with an African company to contribute toward the development of Liberia.
