The release says the UN Vision 2030 is “To support Liberia to become a reconciled, transformed, and prosperous nation anchored on accountable institutions and equitable, inclusive, and sustainable development.”
The UN recognizes the critical role of the Private Sector in supporting the Government of Liberia’s Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD) aspirations and contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
It notes that the partnership between the United Nations and the Private Sector in Liberia has been minimal over the years, and today’s dialogue presents an opportunity for both sides to have a mutual understanding of their contributions to the socio-economic development of Liberia and identify strong collaboration and partnership areas.
“The UN System in Liberia is committed towards a mutually stronger partnership with the private sector to support Liberia’s socio-economic development,” says UN Resident Coordinator Scott. Press Release
