Monrovia, Liberia, April 10, 2024—The deputy head of mission at the Embassy of Germany here, Mr. Peter Speyrer, has praised the Boakai administration’s ongoing development drive under the ARREST agenda and pledged the international community’s unwavering support for standing shoulder to shoulder with Liberia as the government strives to rebuild.

Delivering a special statement on Monday, April 8, 2024, at the start of four days’ joint-sectoral portfolio performance review under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning, Ambassador Speyrer thanked the Ministry of Finance for organizing the forum.

He noted that the mandate President Boakai received from Liberians is a profound responsibility, saying he does not doubt that the President and his team will lead with integrity, transparency, and commitment to progress.

“I would like to acknowledge the ambitious ARREST agenda outlined by President Boakai, particularly his steadfast fight for the rule of law, accountability, and transparency, which deserves respect and support,” he noted.

According to the deputy head of mission, corruption poses a significant threat to the stability and prosperity of any nation, and tackling it requires bold and decisive action.

However, he said international partners recognize the challenges that lie ahead and are committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with Liberia as the country strives to build a more just, equitable, and prosperous society.

“Together, we can work towards a future where every Liberian has the opportunity to fulfill their potential, where the rule of law prevails and where democracy flourishes.”

He expressed delight about the government’s determination to build a new Liberia and how it will harness its advantages and tackle weaknesses and challenges.

“In your endeavors to reform your country and create a new Liberia, know that you do not stand alone; the international community stands ready to offer unwavering support and assistance,” the German envoy assured. Editing by Jonathan Browne
