Then chief executive officer of Boima Folley Sports Center, located at Buzzy Quarters on Capitol Hill in Monrovia, has appealed to the Liberian government to protect Liberian owned businesses in the country.
Mr. Boima Folley, Chief Executive Officer, said only when Liberian businesses are fully protected to secure contracts that they will grow.
He said even though a good relationship exists between his company and the government, he expressed dissatisfaction that more interests were being giving to foreigner businesses when the PPCC sends out bids acquiring contracts.
“The business atmosphere in the current regime is favorable but at the same time running a successful business demands crossing over challenges,” he said.
Mr. Folley however said that with all the challenges, he will continue to overcome reports that Liberians are not good at doing successful businesses.
“The Boima Folley Sports Center which was established in 2003 will always remain here to satisfy Liberians by given them the best sporting materials from the People’s Republic of China,” Folley said.
He said his track record was tested when he successfully provided sporting materials in the last County Sports Meet to all the fifteen county representatives.
Contributing, General Manager Bill Z. Jonson who named some of the challenges facing the company as the cost of transportation, increase in taxes, high duty taxes and other expenditures, noted “We will continue to work within the economic climate of the country.”
Both men praised the Liberian government for the level of security business owners continue to enjoy in the country. “We can go home and sleep sound at night these days without fear,” Folley said, “We also happy with the current Liberia Electricity Corporation power sharing system.”
Johnson said, “This helps to make better businesses in the country, and we are hopeful that the Liberian government will grow stronger the more businesses pay their taxes to the government.”
