A delegation from the Liberian Business Association in Liberia is expected to arrive in Minnesota, USA later this month as a guest of the Liberian Business Association (LIBA-USA). While in Minnesota, the Liberian-based Business delegation headed by its President, Mr. Dee-Maxwell Saah Kemayah, Sr. will among other things, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with LIBAUSA mapping out ways the two entities can collaborate to increase their respective participation in the economy of Liberia.
The MOU will precede a workshop wherein officials of both LIBA-LIBERIA and LBA-USA will exchange views and other critical information and resources on investment possibilities in Liberia.
Areas of concerns will include Health Services, Transportation, Import/Export, Agriculture, Food Processing, Tailoring/Textile/Fashion Design, Movies/Entertainment/Arts, Real Estate Construction, Consultancy, Information Technology, General Merchandize/Provision, Hotel/Hospitality, Restaurant/Catering, etc.
The visit of the Liberian Delegation comes few weeks after the official launching of the Liberian Business Association (LIBA-USA) during which time the President of LIBA-USA, Mr. Jackson K. George, Jr. promised to forge a closer collaborative relationship with Liberian-based business leaders. He emphasized the need for Liberian Businesses in the diaspora to play major roles in rebuilding Liberia.
Many observers believe that the visit of the Liberian business delegation with their counterparts in the North-American Diaspora is in the right direction and could go a long way in promoting trade and investment to Liberia.
Commenting on the visit, the Marwick President of LIBA-USA, Mr. Jackson George, expressed optimism that the visit of the delegation at this time would provide an opportunity for the two entities to share critical information on investment possibilities in Liberia, and how Liberian-owned businesses can access local capital to become more competitive. The signing of the MOU will take place on October 29th in the conference room of the Liberian Business Association in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.
