Kigali: President George Manneh Weah has called on the Director General of the Sustainable Development Goals Center for Africa (SDGC/A) to ensure that Liberia improves on its development performance. According to the Liberian leader, “Liberia currently lies in the red-zone, but this administration is determined to improve the standing of Liberia by implementing development programs set out in the SDGs”.

The Liberian leader immediately moved to set date for the launch of the Center, which will be done concomitantly with the launch of SDGs that are already aligned with the government’s Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD).

Expressing his gratitude and excitement over the establishment of the Center in Liberia, President Weah said that “Liberia being the host country of the SDGC/A in the sub region is a statement of affirmation from the international community.” (End)
