The Vice President of the Republic of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai, has urged Liberians to engage in business in the country. Speaking at the dedication of Vasco Direct Incorporated, Importer and Distributor of Genuine Auto-Parts Business Center in Paynesville over the weekend, VP Boakai said small businesses provide more jobs than big businesses because the small businesses help train young people to know about spare parts and other things.
VP Boakai observed that most of the businesses in Ghana are owned by Ghanaians and therefore urged Liberians to get involved in business because it will also help them contribute meaningfully to the growth and development of the nation.
According to VP Boakai, there are many vehicles in the country and lack spare parts and as a result those vehicles are packed or abandoned.
VP Boakai has applauded the Management of Vasco Direct Incorporated, Importer and Distributor of Genuine Auto parts Business Center for importing spare parts in Liberia.

Mr. Gwilly averred that the Management of Vasco Direct Incorporated, Importer and Distributor of Genuine Auto-Parts Business Center, recently imported a 40-foot container full with spare parts from the United States of America to help vehicle owners get spare parts and fix their cars.
“Lebanese, Indians and Nigerians have taken leading roles in the business sector in the country and they send the money away without developing Liberia but only Liberians can actually develop this country not foreigners, therefore I call on all the citizens to engage in business,” Mr. Gwilly said.
