Liberia To Get 2.5 Billion Grant For Infrastructural Development – Minister Tweh Discloses
Finance and Development Planning Minister Samuel Tweh has wrapped up the developmental outcome for Liberia, from the just ended Africa China Summit held in Bejing.
Addressing a news conference Tuesday at the Ministry of Information, Minister Tweh noted that the Liberian delegation to China was able to bag 2.5 billion, which according to him will go to improve infrastructural development.
He said the People Republic China is committed to providing the fund through a developmental framework that will be designed by the government of Liberia.
Minister Tweh disclosed that the money in question is a grant that the government of Liberia need not panic about in terms of payment.
He stressed that the money will also affect major areas like the Agricultural sector, Power and Road connectivity among others.
Speaking further on the accusation that he rides a first-class plane Class Minister Tweh alluded but says he added 4,000 to upgrade his ticket. A request for Information file by The Monrovia Times to Emirates Airlines was denied on grounds that the airlines do not disclose private information and therefore cannot disclose cost paid by the Minister.
Dear Monrovia Times,
Your quest for a balance reportage is appreciated.
Kindly note that Emirates does not disclose private information of its passenger and cannot disclose the cost paid by a passenger.
Thank you. the airline reply.
He indicated that his decision is in the best interest of the people Liberia while mentioning that he did not enter the government as a broke person.
Despite his boast of earning 500,000 annually before entering government, the finance boss is yet to declare his asset.
