MONROVIA: The Speaker of the House of Representatives at the National Legislature, Dr. Bhofal Chambers, has pushed the need to mold Liberia’s emerging democracy and its economy sustainably.

Dr. Chambers says the account of history and other happenings in the world, has informed his thoughts, that there cannot be a good democracy when the economy is bad.

He asserted that a bad economy is a threat to any promising democracy. Speaker Chambers has therefore called on multilateral and bilateral partners of Liberia to engage the country based on its democratic values and credentials and to also consider Liberia’s challenges in its economy.
Speaker Chambers says Liberia looks forward to broadening its trade with other economies of the world.

He says Liberia has several other resources for commercialization that other economies can tap on, for mutual benefits, ranging from gold, diamonds, forestry, fishery, iron ore, etc.

According to Speaker Chambers, under his stewardship at the House of Representatives, a specialized Committee named the Economic Reconstruction Committee was setup up a few years ago and has since been working to find ways and means to make the Liberian economy better.

“When the economy is better, more people get jobs. Hunger is alleviated. The people will think better and make good choices and decisions in their democratic endeavors or practices,” Dr. Chambers uttered.

Dr. Chambers was speaking recently at his Capitol Building Office when the National Democratic Institute (NDI), a US Congressional-backed Civic Organization working in Liberia paid a courtesy visit to the Speaker, aimed at working with the Liberian Legislature in enhancing democratic values and practices. The visit was led by NDI consultant, Mr. Leo Platvoet, amongst others.
