President Weah Tours Bali Island for the contruction of modern Conference Center

President George Manneh Weah on Monday, March 26, 2018 toured the Bali Island, which is situated in the middle of the Mesurado River. The Liberian leader intends to transform Bali Island into the New Monrovia commencing with the construction of a state-of-the-art International Conference Center and other standardized structures.

Speaking during a boat-ride assessment tour, President Weah commended Liberians for giving him the opportunity to lead the country with a view to enable him transform it. “While coming up as a child; growing up in Clara Town, on Bushrod Island; playing just across the shores of the Stockton Creek; I often looked into the direction of the Bali Island, viewed an undeveloped tourist attraction,” President Weah recounted.

“I wondered what was going on there,” President Weah would ask and went on to say: “I did not know anyone who knew what was going on there. There was no road, no bridge, or ferry to get over here.” he added.

According to President Weah, his dream to see the Island develop began from that moment, noting: “From here, I began to see a “New City of Monrovia” emerging from the ashes of the Old City of Monrovia.”

President Weah explained how he envisions skyscrapers, office buildings, shopping malls, banks, insurance companies, night clubs, beautiful lights and magnificent colors on the Island. He said, similarly he saw a happy and prosperous people, going about their businesses, meeting and greeting each other.”

He intimated that because the dream has never left him, his concern has to proceed with the development of the Bali Island, whenever he was crossing the Gabriel J. Tucker Bridge and had to look into the direction of the Island.

President Weah acknowledged God’s blessing upon him for making him President and leader and noted that the Liberian people have given him the opportunity to make that dream come true for the benefit of all Liberians.

The Liberian leader said the 4000-seated Conference Hall will be named after the late Indian Prime Minister, Mahatma Gandhi, while its construction will be funded by the Government of India.

President Weah was joined by an array of senior government officials, including Indian Consul General to Liberia, Upjit Jetty and a cross-section of government officials at a site, which signifies his commitment to upholding promises made to the nation and people.
