EU Provides €35M For Agriculture and Accountability in Liberia

The European Union (EU) has announced that it will provide €35 million in support of agricultural development and the General Auditing Commission (GAC) in Liberia. Speaking in Monrovia today, European Union Ambassador to Liberia, Tiina Intelmann said the EU props both the private and the public sector in Liberia. The EU supports the Government's efforts to boost the economy through agricultural development, because agriculture is the road to progress and development." "Supporting the national audit watchdog ultimately means assuring that public money is properly and wisely spent so as to provide the citizens of Liberia with best value for their taxes and other country's public resources". Ambassador Intelmann stated that the EU will assist cocoa, fisheries, food and nutrition security as well as capacity at the Ministry of Agriculture in ongoing efforts to implement the Country's own Agriculture Transformation Agenda. She said that the EU will help develop the markets for cocoa and fisheries with €8.5 million and €7 million respectively so that Liberian farmers and fishers will increase their incomes from selling their produce.
