The Liberian Government and Ghana have signed a Technical and Scientific Agreement to help boost Liberia’s Fisheries Sector.
Ghana’s Minister of Aquaculture and Development, Madam Mavis Koomson, noted that the agreement will help the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority (NaFAA) to address Technical and Scientific challenges affecting the system.
Madam Koomson, at the same time, expressed optimism that the agreement will further strengthen the existing bilateral relationship between both countries through fisheries.
She then urged Ghanaian fishermen fishing on Liberian waters to be law-abiding, to sustain the already mutual relationship between the two countries.
The Ghanaian Envoy then praised President George Weah for the Government’s continuous support of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority.
Meanwhile, NaFAA Director General, Emma Glassco, has lauded the Ghanaian Government, most especially Minister Koomson, for Ghana’s continuous support of Liberia.
Madam Glassco said:” The signing of the agreement is crucial to improving fisheries in Liberia, describing it as a milestone achievement.”
She affirmed NaFAA’s commitment to ensure the protection of share stocks and enforce compliance with global and regional fisheries regulations.
The agreement was signed on Wednesday, July 12, 2023, by NaFAA Director General, Emma Glassco, on behalf of the Government of Liberia, while Ghana’s Minister of Aquaculture and Development, Marvis Koomson, signed for the Government of Ghana.
