President George Weah has stressed the significance of the work of the Public Procurement Concessions Commission in Liberia’s economic and political governance process.
Speaking Wednesday, at the official opening of the Third Annual PPCC Forum being held at the Ministerial Complex, President Weah emphasized the importance of the Commission in reviewing and making assessments of what needs to be done to improve effectiveness, as the institution is central to his administration’s drive to bring integrity to the overall governance process.
The Liberian Leader said the PPCC has managed to ensure that the already scarce resources of Liberia are effectively and judiciously managed and that contracts and concessions meet all requirements in accordance with the law.
President Weah also urged officials of the Commission to put the country first to achieve the overall national development goals and not personal interest.
He stated that over the years, the PPCC has established itself as one of the most vital institutions of Liberia’s governing processes, adding that holding an Annual Review to make assessments to improve its effectiveness is important.
The Liberian Leader recalled that the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) and the PPCC, along with other anti-graft entities, are being given renewed focus by his administration, in an effort to improve their capacity and facilitate their work.
The Third Annual PPCC Forum is being held under the theme: “Innovations and Reforms: Strengthening Liberia’s Public Procurement System, and is aimed at creating avenues to identify implementation challenges and shortcomings of the amended PPCC Act of 2010.
