South Korea Pledges 30 Buses

By Alva M. Wolokolie

If all arrangements go well, the Government of Liberia is expected to receive additional 30 buses from the government and people of South Korea to assist the transport sector.

Speaking to a group of journalists yesterday upon his arrival from Australia, Vice President Joseph N. Boakai disclosed that during his visit to South Korea, the South Koreans government has agreed to send 30 buses to Liberia to buttress government’s effort within the transport sector.

The VP could not disclose the exact time the buses would arrive in the country but indicated that a delegation from that country is due here soon to explore investment possibilities.

Ambassador Boakai told newsmen that Korea has interest in establishing cell phone companies that would train Liberians how to repair those phones when damaged.

According to him, what is prudent now is for the Liberian government to send out an invitation to South Korea for the delegation to visit the country.

This would be the second donation of buses to the Sirleaf led administration. The first buses were donated by the Government and People of India during the first regime of President Sirleaf. Those buses are currently operating in Monrovia and other parts of the country.
