Monrovia, November 17 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has challenged Liberian entrepreneurs to take advantage of the 25 percent allotted in the national budget for government agencies to procure goods and services from Liberian businesses.

She observed that it is critical to empower Liberian businesses through that process, and called on Liberian businesses to register with the Public Procurement and Concessions Commission (PPCC) to be identified officially by government.

The Liberian leader proffered the challenge Tuesday at Liberia’s Third Annual Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Conference and Trade Fair held at the Monrovia City Hall.

She cautioned Liberians against fronting for other nationals as Liberian businesses which have been targeted to benefit from the 25 percent, and urged them to engage the process according to law.

Meanwhile, President Sirleaf has instructed supermarket operators in Liberia to make available shelves in their supermarkets and stores for made-in-Liberia products, and not to reject Liberian products.

She stressed that it is wrong for supermarkets and stores to reject Liberian -made products, assuring that if they have Liberian products on their shelves, government will not deny them the opportunity to import products from different countries.
