I bring you greetings from Africa’s First Republic, the Republic of Liberia and its hospitable citizens. Prior to the inception of my ascendancy to the Office of President of the Republic of Liberia, the Liberian economy had undergone many economic challenges. Shocks from the Ebola crisis, the dwindling prices of exports such as Iron Ore and Rubber, and the reduction in foreign investments to the country has amounted to loss of critical government revenues.
The social imperatives upon which my government is built; the promise of economic security for all Liberians, the construction of roads and civil infrastructure, the funding of free and quality primary and tertiary education, providing quality health care, offering electricity for all, and fighting corruption, are promises that must be brought to fruition. I have pursued these goals under the framework of The Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD) which offers Liberians opportunities for prosperity, unity and peace. For the Oil and Gas sector, this translates to the fulfillment of the ultimate long-term desire of investors for contract sanctity, contract security, and an unhindered return-on-investment. Thus, to make good of our promises to the people, it is necessary that government finds additional revenue sources to turn its promises into projects.. The oil & gas sector in Liberia offers many opportunities for investors and partners. It will be a pleasure to have you come and put your capital to work in Liberia. This is indeed not business as usual and you can look forward to a transparent, and win-win partnership with the people of Liberia. My country and I applaud your interest in the Oil & Gas Sector in Liberia and look forward to seeing you as a partaker in our 2019 Bid Round Process. Join us as we move our nation and its people into the future.
Dr. George Manneh Weah
President of the Republic of Liberia
