The Minister of Commerce and Industry, Professor Wilson K. Tarpeh, says the CDC-led administration will not be deterred by opposition tactics to distract the current government from doing its work.
He says President Weah will translate his vision for the country into reality through workable and achievable programs rather than erection of attractive and costly bill boards that will have no meaningful bearing on the lives of Liberians, especially ordinary citizens.
Speaking in Ganta, Nimba County at the close of a two-day Business Climate Forum, Minister Tarpeh notes that taking the lives of Liberians from several years desolation to appreciable level entails a lot, including job creation, keeping the peace and reuniting the entire citizenry.
According to a press release issued by the Commerce Ministry, the Forum was organized by the Business Climate Working Group, under the theme: “Resolving Constraints to Trading across Borders.”
He says organizing gatherings of such nature is a timely idea that will always be supported by the government.
Minister Tarpeh also calls on fellow political appointees not to get at each another’s throat, but rather combine their respective efforts to translate government’s Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development into reality by offering their best in terms of services to country.
He says the Ministry of Commerce and Industry will ensure that quality goods are always available on the Liberian market, at stable and affordable prices.
Minister Tarpeh continues that Liberia is cognizant of the World Trade Organization (WTO’s) provisions and will continue to uphold them.
Notwithstanding, he stresses that the Liberian government will equally ensure that its programs, policies and decisions are people-driven, adding that emphasis will continue to be placed on quality goods than quantity.
‘’Let it be very clear that the greatest interest of the CDC-led government of President George Manneh Weah is the Liberian people,” he adds. Press Release
