The Program Officer for Democracy and Human Rights at the Swedish Embassy, Nicolina Stallhand lauded the LRA Management for their unwavering commitment to Liberia’s domestic resource mobilization.

She considered this initiative as a “significant milestone” and the beginning of a stronger partnership between the institutions, and thereby highlighted the fruitful engagements between the HR Department, Management, and the Swedish Tax Agency since the inception of the project.

She further expressed her hope that the implementation of the Guiding Principles would bring about positive changes in the institution’s daily operations.

Meanwhile, Deputy Finance Minister for for Economic Management, Augustus Flomo commended the LRA for consistently driving positive changes and emphasized that the launch of the Guiding Principles would contribute to the Government of Liberia’s efforts in generating greater results through increased revenue.

Flomo extended his gratitude to the Swedish Embassy for their instrumental role in supporting the LRA and strengthening the institution’s human resources.
