President George M. Weah has returned to the country following a week-long international visit to the United States of America and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
President Weah and a high-power government delegation left Liberia for two important engagements – in the United States of America (USA) and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The President touched down midday on Tuesday, March 28, 2023 at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) and was received by an array of government officials led by his Minister of State, George Wesseh Blamoh.
Speaking to reporters at the RIA, President Weah described his trip as fruitful, saying that he held a series of engagements with partners in the US and the United Arab Emirates. “As President, I represented the country; and the trip was one of my routine official engagements with international partners and stakeholders,” he said.
“So, I am happy that it was fruitful. And Liberia as a huge biodiversity, and a huge forest reserve, we were able to ensure that our country benefits from international support related to our forest and other resources. There is forest fund, and there’s a need we tap from it,” he explained.
