EIB backs Monrovia airport runway upgrade

Urgently needed work to upgrade the runway and address safety at Liberia's main airport in the capital of Monrovia will be backed by Europe's long-term lending institution, the European Investment Bank (EIB), following an agreement signed in Washington DC (USA).


The twenty-year USD 27.3 million loan for Roberts International Airport was formally agreed on the sidelines of the World Bank IMF Meetings and will be co-financed with the Saudi Fund for Development and the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa. The occasion also allowed detailed discussion of issues of pressing concern in Liberia, the government’s economic recovery plan and EIB engagement in West Africa.
