Remarks With Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Before Their Meeting
Secretary of State
So Madam President, again, welcome.
PRESIDENT SIRLEAF: Thank you very much, Secretary Clinton. As we start a new administration in Liberia, I’ve come on behalf of the Liberian people to say how much we appreciate the partnership, the support we’ve received, that has enabled us to make so much progress in these past six years.
As we go forward with this administration, we’d like to see the partnership strengthen. We want to make sure that all the things we’ve done now translate into improving the welfare of our people. That’s our new agenda.
And I’ll be participating in the USAID conference on Frontiers in Development where new innovative and creative things financing under these partnerships will be discussed. I bring with me some members of our legislature so they too can have the opportunity to exchange views and to go back strengthened as they play their role in collaborating with the administration for the good of our people. Thank you so much.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you.
