The Patriotic Entrepreneurs of Liberia (PATEL) has commended President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Executive Order No. 89.
The Executive Order contains intrinsic policy measures that are intended to stimulate economic growth, with emphasis on reducing administrative or compliance cost, business process requirements on concessionaires, including small and medium-sized businesses and the manufacturing sector.
Caesar Morris, IT consultant and chief communications officer of PATEL, said though the organization is in serious crisis, they have succeeded to a large extent in the organization’s advocacy.
Every year, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry host its flagship program, the Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (MSME) Conference and Trade Fair to provide a platform for small business owners to showcase their products and services. The conference presents an opportunity for small business owners to converge in one place and engage in exchanges aimed at developing the MSME sector in Liberia.
