Liberia’s Scrap Dealer Association (LSDA) is expected to embark on a total review of all government and public policies that the sector considers as “harmful.”

LSDA says these policies are affecting the economic growth of the scrap sector.

Over the weekend, the president of LSDA Mr. Ayouba Kamara said the association will be looking into the government’s policies that are hindering the growth of the sector.

“We will [review] all public policies of government that are hurting and hunting the scrap economic and general interest of the common who rely on the scrap industries for their daily needs and survival of their families,” Mr. Kamara assured.

According to him, the Inter-Agency Scrap Regulator Committee is chaired by the Ministry of Mines and Energy which is responsible for the coordination and enforcement of the scrap regulations.

Under the past administration, he said there was failure and neglect to look at the prices of scrap in the country.

He promised to ensure that those working in the scrap sector adhere to the rule of law, adding that he will make sure nobody violates any policy or regulation governing the acquisition and processing of the scrap in Liberia.

“Let me use this opportunity to thank President Joseph Nyumah Boakai and Senator Jeremiah K. Koung, now Vice President,” he said.

He said they would work with the Liberian government under President Boakai to bring in investors to improve the country’s economic sector.

The Liberia Scrap Dealer Association of Liberia over the weekend officially inducted and certificated Mr. Ayouba Kamara and his co-workers as the new leadership of the institution.

The program, which brought together several partners and well-wishers, marked the 5th inaugural program of the organization.
