He said after seven months of vigorous working section, the group has been indebted to various technical specialists participating in sector working groups and other multi-sectoral for the time and contributions to the formulation of the pillar goals and results framework for the 'Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development' (PAPD)".

Henry said the technical committee of the group also lauded Minister Samuel D. Tweah and President George Weah for the support given to the team for the completion of the developmental plan for the country.
