Liberia’s Revenue Authority Chief Hails Sweden’s Support To Development… Seeks Partnership & Technical Assistance

Monrovia, June 17, 2016The Commissioner General of the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) Mrs. Elfrieda Stewart Tamba has applauded the contribution of the Swedish Government to the development of Liberia, including the Liberia Revenue Authority.

Sweden has been helping with Liberia’s postwar development program in several areas including strengthening of the financial sector though its development arm—Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).

 “The Swedish government has been good partners to Liberia….especially in your goal to reduce poverty,” Commissioner General Tamba stated recently when she led an LRA delegation to the Swedish Embassy in Monrovia. The visit was a follow-up to the one paid to the LRA by the Swedish Ambassador to Liberia Ms. Lena Nordström in late January.

 The Commissioner General acknowledged the Swedish Government’s goal to support poverty reduction and indicated that the more private sector trade is improved in the country, the better it will be for Liberia and Liberians.

“We have come to concretize our relationship with the Swedish Government,” the country’s chief tax collector said, adding, “Though we have benefited from the Swedish Government through the SIDA basket, we come to seek a more direct Technical Assistance from the Swedish Government.”

The Swedish envoy indicated that her government intends to help people living in poverty better their lives because it is part of Human Rights.

The head of Development Cooperation at the Embassy added that Sweden’s support focus on Strengthening Democracy, Gender Equality, and increasing respect for human rights.
