In West Africa, the government of Liberia disclosed to have concluded the financing agreement with the multinational renewable energy company, Gigawatt Global.

According to local media the Liberian Observer, the signing took place last week at the permanent mission of Liberia to the United Nations in New York.

Social responsibility

It is reported that foreign affairs minister Marjon Kamara signed on behalf of the Liberian government, while the new projects coordinator, Remy Reinstein, signed on behalf of Gigawatt Global.

During the signing ceremony, Kamara is reported to have expressed satisfaction that the company has an element of corporate social responsibility attached to the project.

She said: "It's almost a must now that when you enter these kinds of contracts the company or enterprise does something for the community in which it operates. I'm very pleased that your business philosophy enables you to address other needs in your operational areas."

Commenting on the development, Reinstein stated that beside the deal of a 10MW to be launched, his company intends to install 30 additional megawatts in other parts of the country where government deems fit.
