The minister spoke Thursday, August 16, 2018 at a CIO Council Workshop held at the Ministry main edifice in central Monrovia.

He said the website was formally launched by the Vice President of Liberia, Madam Jewel Howard-Taylor during the celebration of the country’s 171st Independence anniversary.
