Representatives of the media,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good afternoon!

Today, on behalf of the Chinese government, I'm delighted to donate'the fourth batch of anti-COVID epidemic materials to the government of the Republic of Liberia. We are honored to have the presence and witness of H.E. President Weah.

I'm pleased to announce that this batch of medical supplies include 180 ventilators, 50 oxygen concentrators together with 1,800 full face masks and 500 tubing parts, 17,600 medical protective face masks, and 100 infrared thermometers. We hope these medical supplies, which have followed the most stringent Chinese manufacturing standard, will be distributed to all public hospitals and private medical institutions across the country of Liberia.

H.E. President Weah,

Ladies and gentlemen,

COVID-19 is raging all over the world and posing serious threats to the health, safety and well-beings of hundreds of millions of people.

China and Liberia are good brothers, good friends and good partners and have always helped and supported each other. The Chinese government and people highly appreciate the support rendered by President Weah, the government and people of Liberia to President Xi, the Chinese government and people during our most difficult time and the facilitation such as tests, treatment and vaccination rendered by the health authorities of Liberia to the Chinese nationals working and living in Liberia.

Meanwhile, China is the first to offer assistance to Liberia and her people in your fight against the COVID-19 pandemic as we did during the fight against Ebola in 2014. We are also, through international humanitarian organizations and institutions such as UNICEF and WFP, delivering food and nutrition programs in Liberia. As President Xi has announced, China is determined to make Chinese-made COVID vaccines a global public product and we are ready to carry out cooperation with Liberia in this regard.

H.E. President Weah,

Ladies and gentlemen,

In recent years, under the guidance of President Xi and  President Weah, our two countries' friendly cooperative relations have been deepened and strengthened. Our cooperation, based on the principle of equality, consultation, mutual respect and win-win, is in line with the Belt and Road Initiative (B&R) as advocated by President Xi and the Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD) as advocated by President Weah, and serves the broad interests of our two countries and peoples.

In the years to come, the Chinese side is ready to double our efforts to further promote our all-round cooperation with Liberia in all areas such as infrastructure particularly roads, telecommunication and electricity, as well as agriculture, mining, public health and people-to-people exchanges. 

Thank you!
