LIBERIAN DIASPORA MEETING WITH H.E. GEORGE M. WEAH, President of the Republic of Liberia
On January 3, 2019, President George Weah hosted nearly 300 Liberians at his Jamaica Resort in Paynesville, outside Monrovia, and held an interactive dialogue with them on various issues of national concerns.
The Liberian Diaspora representatives spoke of a range of issues, including trade and commerce, dual citizenship and foreign diplomacy. The President was asked to cultivate close relationship with Liberian Diaspora citizens in order to make them a part of government’s development agenda.
He pledged government’s support to all Liberians, including those in the diaspora, particularly citizens wishing to invest in the economy of the country. The President reiterated his commitment to empower Liberians to fully participate, and not be spectators, in the economy of their own country.
On the issue of dual citizenship, the President informed the visitors that he had already submitted a bill to the Legislature on the matter, promising to give it a push for its final passage into law when lawmakers return to work in the coming weeks.
He assured the diaspora visitors of his fullest support and promised to include everyone in the rebuilding process of the country.
Weah expressed government’s willingness to empower Liberian entrepreneurs to build factories and other companies for the good of the country. He challenged the groups to take advantage of the government’s offers in order to compete with foreign investors.
The President’s visitors included representatives from the European Liberian Federation Association (EFLA)and the Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas (ULAA). Others came from South Sudan, Ghana, Australia, United Arab Emirates and the Scandinavian countries. All the Liberian Diaspora Associations are members of All Liberians Conference on Dual Citizenship (ALCDC) headed by Hon. Emanuel WETTEE.
