LCA Honors Liberians in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex
Saturday November 28, 2013
The newly elected officers of the Liberian Community Association of the Dallas Forth Worth Metroplex brought together Liberians in the Diaspora to honor them for their contributions to the community. Those honored included seniors, community and organizations leaders, past presidents of LCA, religious leaders, youths and Liberian business owners. According to the president elect Mr. Stanley Gaye, this was his administration way of reaching out to members of the community and showing appreciations to them for their committment to the Association and also to encourage Liberians to participate and support this new administration.

It was not too long ago that there was a vacuum of leadership in the community since the last administration term ended. According to information reaching us, no one wanted to step up to the plate and take over the helm of the association. Several meetings were called by the election commissioner and a fund raiser ....Full Story

Summary: KEY ISSUES Context: Real GDP growth is projected to remain robust at 8.1 percent in 2013, led by mining, construction, and services. Inflation should reach 8.5 percent in December (y/y) due to higher international food prices and recent exchange rate pressures. The baseline outlook is positive, with new mining projects and plantations due to start operations in the coming years. Downside risks stem from delays in public investment, and uncertainty linked to the weak external environment. Accelerating implementation of the authorities’ poverty reduction strategy, the Agenda for Transformation, and in particular road and energy projects, is key to boosting growth in the non-mining sector and reduce poverty. Policies: Fiscal policy focuses on scaling-up public investment while maintaining debt sustainability and strengthening project execution capacity. ..... Full Text
