President George Weah on Thursday, August 26, 2021, dedicated a newly renovated market in the Township of West Point, fulfilling another milestone commitment to giving marketers across the country relief from difficult conditions they face in the marketplace.
Most market structures in the country were in a terrible state of disrepair before the advent of President Weah to national leadership.
The president, whose mother was a market woman, promised during the 2017 political campaign, to create better structures and environments for Liberians, mostly women, who are in retail businesses but were doing their businesses in poor structures and under bad weather conditions.
The Liberian Leader has since embarked upon constructing state-of-the-arts market halls in rural and urban communities across the country.
On Thursday, August 26, President Weah toured Monrovia to inspect ongoing market projects, mainly market buildings under construction.
Upon his arrival in the Township of West Point, the Liberian Leader was greeted by local government officials, elders, and youth, and following a brief ceremony, President Weah cut the ribbon to the new market in the Township and then toured the building.
From the densely populated slum community of West Point, the Liberian Leader visited Duala to assess and inspect ongoing works at the Duala Market Complex which is being jointly financed by the Governments of Liberia and Japan.
At the site, President Weah discussed with the construction engineers and others closed to the project, mainly seeking answers about the design, space, and time for completion of the project.
The President then visited the Omega Market to inspect additional works ongoing at the famous 14 Gorbachev Market, where the government through the Ministry of Public Works and Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment is undertaking mini-projects aimed at expanding the facility to accommodate as many marketers as possible.
Few annexes are presently being constructed to create more space for the huge number of marketers currently selling under difficult situations.
