President Obama Writes President Sirleaf

(MONROVIA, LIBERIA - October 27, 2009): United States President Barack Obama, has written Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, commending the President for leading the discussion on job creation at a recent working luncheon, hosted in New York, for Heads of State and leaders of Sub-Saharan African countries.

"I appreciate your focus on the importance of education and skills-based training, particularly in post-conflict situations," the US President said in his letter to the Liberian President. Re-echoing the significance of the impact of Liberia's civil conflict on the youth population, the US President acknowledged that Liberia has made great progress in creating the foundation for a better future not only for Liberia's youth but for the entire population.

An Executive Mansion release says, the United States President also expressed appreciation to President Johnson Sirleaf for her efforts in Guinea. The US, Mr. Obama indicated, shares the Liberian leader's concerns about violence and political instability spreading to other parts of Africa. "We will continue to work with you and other leaders in the region to support democratic change in Guinea," President Obama assured the Liberian President in his letter.

Meanwhile, President Obama has assured the Liberian leader that the United States is committed to working with Liberia and other global partners to reenergize the world's economy. In the G-20, the US President informed President Johnson Sirleaf, that leaders of the world's largest economies have agreed to reform and increase resources for international financial institutions and development banks. "We recognize the increased role in the world economy of emerging markets and developing economies and want to ensure we work together to expand global prosperity. I look forward to continuing to work with you to address issues of importance to Liberia and also for all of Africa," President Obama concluded in his letter to President Johnson Sirleaf.
