Liberian Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai accompanied by Chinese Ambassador to Liberia H.E. Mr. ZHOU Yuxiao, over the week end visited the Fendell Campus Construction Project of the University of Liberia, a China-aid program in the education field to the postwar Liberia.
Extolling the partnership and friendship between Liberia and China, the Liberian Vice President observed that, the construction of the modern facility by the Chinese Government demonstrated the value of the partnership China and the people of Liberia shared, the vice President also commended the Chinese Embassy in Liberia for its quick response in bringing the China-aid project into reality within a very short time frame, which has been clearly becoming another impetus towards Liberia's reconstruction agenda and surely will encourage numerous Liberian youth in the pursuits of their higher education.
Upon his departure, Vice President Joseph Boakai presented two local goats to the Chinese contractor as an expression of his personal appreciation towards their goodwork.
