World Bank, IMF Okay ETON $536million Loan – Tweah

Liberian authorities Thursday held talks in Monrovia with Eton Finance Pte Ltd. to conclude financial and technical details of the proposed $536 million loan agreement.

The discussion will continue today at the Ministry of Public Works, Information Minister Eugene Nagbe said at a news conference, yesterday.

International partners have given Liberia the green light to secure the Eton loan with conditions that all transactions should be consistent with international best practice and via the international financial system, Finance and Development Planning Minister Samuel Tweah told reporters.

He said the Liberian government is responsible and would not enter into a bogus contract that would harm the country.

“Eton has agreed the money will be transferred through recognized commercial banks,” said Tweah. Read more...

Achieving Liberia’s Pro-Poor Agenda with a Pro-Liberia and Pro-Self Dependency and Anti-Aid Mindset.

By: Rufus S. Berry II, MBA

After over 170 years of independence, I’m in total agreement with President Weah that the time has come to effectively transform our nation. We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are. We need to transform our nation in making critical and informed decisions, negotiating contracts and concession agreements that benefit the country and people, control spending, eliminate waste, improve infrastructure (Roads! Roads! Roads), create jobs, develop the agriculture and agribusiness sectors, effectively combat corruption, and change the people's mindset about work ethic and the importance of hard work.

Russia Wants to Light up Africa

The African continent is in huge need of energy investments, and Russia could become one of its key partners, according to President Vladimir Putin speaking at BRICS summit in Johannesburg.

“I would especially like to note that Russia is planning to step up its assistance in development of national energy in African states,” said the Russian president during the BRICS-Africa Outreach panel on Friday.

The leaders of governments of BRICS member states (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) were holding a panel dedicated to economics cooperation between the bloc and African countries. The rationale behind the BRICS Plus concept is to create a platform for greater interaction and partnerships amongst countries to win more power for emerging economies globally. Read more...

Liberia: John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital Denies Having Confirmed Ebola Case on Ward

Monrovia – John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, Liberia’s biggest referral hospital, has denied reports of having on its ward a confirmed Ebola case.

“This is indeed a Fake news geared to instill fear and distrust in our facilities. We are incredibly saddened by such damaging propaganda towards the healthcare delivery center,” the hospital said in a statement.The hospital’s management explained that the recent relocation of patients to the newly renovated Emergency Room facility, which was probably misconstrued, is due to the creation of additional bed spaces in line with its 150-day deliverables.

As high seas threaten Liberian slum, residents await promised homes

MONROVIA, July 30 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - On a windy day in Liberia's waterfront slum of West Point, Gbeneweieh Quoh surveys what remains of her home, fearful that it may crumble into the ocean.

The waves tore away three bedrooms in the past year, leaving the fragile structure even more vulnerable to rising tides and storms.

Yet Quoh's family cannot afford to move anywhere else, so they are just staying put, she said. "What can we do? Nobody will help."

Theirs is one of thousands of homes that risk sliding into the sea in Monrovia's densely populated slum community, according to the Liberian government. Read more...

U.S. SECRET WARS IN AFRICA RAGE ON, DESPITE TALK OF DOWNSIZING

LAST OCTOBER, FOUR U.S. soldiers – including two commandos – were killed in an ambush in Niger. Since then, talk of U.S. special operations in Africa has centered on missions being curtailed and troop levels cut.

Press accounts have suggested that the number of special operators on the front lines has been reduced, with the head of U.S. Special Operations forces in Africa directing his troops to take fewer risks. At the same time, a “sweeping Pentagon review” of special ops missions on the continent may result in drastic cuts in the number of commandos operating there. U.S. Africa Command has apparently been asked to consider the impact on counterterrorism operations of cutting the number of Green Berets, Navy SEALs, and other commandos by 25 percent over 18 months and 50 percent over three years.

(BEIJING, PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA – Monday, July 30, 2018) For the first time since Liberia reestablished diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China (PRC) nearly 15 years ago, the Liberian Embassy in Beijing hosted a diplomatic reception in observance of the country’s 171st Independence Anniversary.

Relations between Liberia and the PRC have been broken and reestablished several times since February 17, 1977 when diplomatic relations were first established during the administration of President William Richard Tolbert.  However, on October 12, 2003, during the brief administration of President Moses Z. Blah, Liberia dropped diplomatic relations with Republic of China (Taiwan), established by President Charles Taylor, and reestablished ties with the PRC. Since then, Liberia has had a diplomatic presence in Beijing. Read more...
