Black Caucus Chairwoman Meets With President Of Liberia

 Washington D.C. – Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, released the following statement after meeting with CBC members and President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia:

“Under President Sirleaf’s leadership, Liberia has continued to make significant strides in the transition to a lasting Democracy by reducing violence, cracking down on corruption, reforming land policies, raising education standards and pursuing economic policies to create jobs and reduce poverty.

“We are pleased that Liberia, a country with historic ties to the United States and the African American community continues to make progress toward a successful reconstruction. As we await an announcement regarding Liberia’s forthcoming participation in the Millennium Challenge Corporation Threshold Program, I want to congratulate President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Liberia’s enormous progress to date.

“We also look forward to the beginning of Delta air service from Atlanta, GA to Monrovia, Liberia, which will serve to strengthen the U.S.-Liberia partnership by opening new doors for the exchange of ideas, cultures, and commerce between the U.S. and Liberia.

“We look forward to advancing this strong partnership in support of Liberia’s post-war rebuilding efforts.”
