Presidential spokesperson Jerolinmek Matthew Piah said in the statement reaching Xinhua that a framework agreement was signed between both countries while another agreement for a 50-million-U.S. dollar loan was signed between China Exim Bank and Liberia for the rehabilitation of RIA runway and the modernization of the terminal building.

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said in the statement that Chinese quality and speed will characterize the airport rehabilitation project.

“If many Liberians have not seen qualitative Chinese engineering, they would find out through quality and speed during the airport’s rehabilitation period,” she said.

The president lauded China for several development projects undertaken in the country, including the 60 million dollars ministerial complex that is about to take off, the Capitol Building Annex, the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex and the Monrovia Vocational Training Center. Enditem
