…Says House Speaker Chambers
House Speaker Bhofal Chambers recently received in audience at his Capitol Building Office, a visiting Chinese Parliamentarian Delegation on a follow-up mission of China’s development commitments to Liberia, following the just-ended Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) Summit in Beijing.
The Chinese Parliamentarian Members Delegation was headed by Ambassador Wan Gang, vice chairman, National Committee and Chairman of Central Committee of the China Zhi Gong Party.
Amb. Wan held talks with senior Liberian government officials, and subsequently climaxed the delegation’s mission with the Liberian Legislature, headed by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Bhofal Chambers.
Wan informed Speaker Chambers that his government is committed to supporting Liberia in its bid to mitigate the development challenges the country is faced with.
Amb. Wan, who spoke through his interpreter, assured his Liberian counterpart that their visit to the country is a follow-up in commitment to the gains made by the Liberian government’s delegation headed by President George Weah to this year’s FOCAC Summit in Beijing, China, where Liberia secured a commitment from the Chinese government in several areas of its national challenges, specifically in infrastructural development.
He pledged the Chinese Parliament’s readiness to work closely with the Liberian Legislature, and exchange know-how and experiences in meeting the needs of their respective peoples. He then extended an invitation to Speaker Chambers to visit the Chinese Parliament.
“China remains one of Liberia’s top development partners,” Speaker Chambers said. He then expressed Liberians’ gratefulness to China for the level of achievement made over the period.
He said there are several development projects that Liberians can point to and which were solely done by China, and therefore assured his counterpart of the readiness of the Liberia Legislature to accelerate its relationship with the Chinese Parliament in several areas of cooperation in the interest of their respective peoples.
Speaker Chambers then accepted the invitation of the Chinese Parliamentarian Delegation, and promised to pay an official visit to China in the soonest possible time.
