If you have seen any of the several vehicles plying the streets of Monrovia with the words “Solo Cab” and a Wi-fi symbol printed on the side, don’t put out your hand; it won’t stop. Yes, it’s a ‘cab’, but not your average taxi.
The Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning yesterday signed US$50.8 million "State Building Contract" with the European Union.
The State Building Contract (SBC) is a program which is part of the EU’s co-operation with Liberia, and will provide funds to focus on health services, after the Ebola crisis and supporting justice and security services in anticipation of UNMIL’s drawdown.
The National Port Authority (NPA), in collaboration with APM Terminals and the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) has auctioned abandoned container units through sealed bids. The containers had overstayed within the premises at the Freeport of Monrovia for over three months or more.
The auction indicates that several 40 feet and 20 feet containers had stayed for 90 days or above while loose cargoes (pallet drinks and Water) have also stayed for more than 90 days. Included among the auctioned items were several abandoned vehicles.
