Speaking at the opening session of the first National Convention of the Liberia Business Association (LIBA) held in Paynesville outside Monrovia yesterday, Dr. Jones also called on members of LIBA to be a productive arm of the Liberian economy.
“You are the future of the private sector; you are the future of the Liberian Economy and I want you to know that you are the future of the Liberian middle class,” Dr. Jones whose administration at the CBL has been at the center of promoting Liberian Entrepreneurship noted.
He described the LIBA First National Convention as a great event that can go a long way transforming and empowering Liberian businesses, saying, “Today is a great day for the development of the Liberian economy.”
Dr. Jones whose administration at the CBL is instrumental in giving the LIBA US$250,00 for capacity building and a loan package of US$5m promised the CBL’s commitment to working with LIBA in achieving its goals.
“The CBL will continue to work with you to ensure that you stand and be a serious participant in the economic transformation of our country,” Governor Jones said.
