first_imgIf revelations made by the Minister of Commerce and Industry, Axel Addy during the US Embassy’s 10th biannual Arts and Crafts Fair are fully implemented, Liberian entrepreneurs, especially those dealing in locally produced goods now stand to benefit. Addressing scores of artists and crafts dealers who turned out on the embassy grounds to showcase their products, Minister Addy announced that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has signed into law the Small Business Empowerment Act.  According to the Minister, 25 percent of money spent on procurement will now be strictly directed to purchasing products and services of Liberian owned businesses.  This means that in the national budget, procurement amounting to US$74 million will go to Liberian owned businesses.  In the wake of this development, Minister Addy urged Liberians to register their businesses, and be taxpayers, and read the procurement law to know how they can benefit from the opportunity that has been provided them.  He said implementation of the law is the most successful part, and therefore, Liberian entrepreneurs should read the procurement law to know how much will be set aside for procurement.  He disclosed that there will be a provision in the budget that will compel every minister to report how each of them has helped to empower Liberian owned businesses.  Stressing on the importance of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Minister Addy said that it is an engine of employment for many Liberians and his Ministry is determined to see it improving.  He said if development such as road pavement and hydro power plant construction are done, there will still be a major gap if the need for sustenance of citizens is not addressed.  It is on the basis of sustenance that the Minister stressed the need for concentration on Liberian owned businesses to help reduce high unemployment rate.  Minister Addy, who began by praising Liberian entrepreneurs for their persistence in upholding the small business sector in the midst of difficulties, said a recent pronouncement by President Sirleaf requiring government employees and others to wear Liberian made products is an indication that the President is committed to improving Liberian owned businesses.   He used the occasion to commend the U.S. Embassy for its commitment in assisting Liberians and other Africans to showcase their products.  He also encouraged organizers of the fair to prioritize Liberian products, instead of buying goods and artifacts from Mali and other African countries.   Patronizing Liberian made products, the Minister believes, will give more encouragement to Liberian artists and producers of various commodities to do more to improve their talents and goods. Sheila Paskman, Charge´ d’Affaires at the U.S. Embassy told the businesspeople at the fair that the exhibition would have taken place months back, but could not because of the Ebola epidemic.  She said America’s interest in helping Liberians to showcase their products is meant to help promote the country’s businesses and to especially get Liberians to take interest in their cultural heritage.  When President Sirleaf gave her 2013 state of the nation address, she mentioned full implementation of the Liberianization policy which Minister Addy had promised to implement.  It may also be recalled that in 2012 at the Market Place on Carey Street, former National Investment Commission (NIC) official, Ciatta Bishop, called on multinational companies operating in the country to give preference to Liberian made products to empower Liberian owned businesses.  Buyers on the other hand have complained that most products made in Liberia are not guaranteed, but yet very costly, which they claim is the reason for prioritizing foreign products.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

They also hope to steer educators toward possible funding sources that will allow them to “green” their schools. The conference, being held at the Pasadena Convention Center, is covering a range of issues, including how schools can save money by implementing green technology and how green practices can improve student health. More than 200 exhibitors, 75 educational presentations and dozens of workshops will have been presented by the conference’s finale later today. Workshops range from how to get a green school built to examining ways to improve school lunches. • Photo Gallery: Green California PASADENA – Green went to school Wednesday. At a first-of-its-kind, two-day summit focusing on ways to turn the state’s nearly 1,000 public schools into green, self-sustainable campuses, hundreds of educators and interested parties looked at several recent innovations – including file folders and post-it notes made from soy-based products. There was even a jungle gym made entirely of plastic milk containers. Turning schools into green zones means “students are healthier and they are learning in a healthier environment,” said Rosario Marin, who serves in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cabinet as secretary of the State and Consumer Services Agency. Environmentally friendly school buildings are more cost-effective, summit experts said. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, green schools save an average of $100,000 per year in energy costs. A school site’s lifetime is usually 42 years, bringing potential savings to $4.2 million, council officials said. One eco-friendly idea that got support from many at the summit is the concept of “grid-neutrality,” in which schools generate all the energy they need, then put any excess energy back into the power grid, said David Thorman, the state architect. It’s a concept he is committed to achieving, Thorman said. The conference’s opening remarks came from various state officials and environmental advocates, including actor Ed Begley Jr., who has made energy conservation his life’s passion, and David E. Long, the state’s secretary of education. While global climate change, ocean pollution and groundwater contamination remain daunting problems, Begley said he “was filled with hope” from the growing support for the green movement. “We are heading in the right direction,” he said. caroline.an@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4494 www.insidesocal.com/schools160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In recent weeks, Stuckey has found himself subject to new criticism as outgoing board member Erica Brunson – who has supported Villaraigosa in the past – urged the mayor to replace Stuckey. Villaraigosa met with league leaders last week, asking them to give him time to resolve the issues, but leaders of the group said later they were not satisfied with his responses. Aides to the mayor said Friday he would have no comment on the matter. Rick Orlov, (213) 978-0390 Rejecting the request of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for more time to address their concerns, members of the Animal Defense League announced plans Friday to demonstrate today in front of the mayor’s Mount Washington home. In an e-mail to members, league officials said they decided to take their anger over the issue directly to Villaraigosa’s neighborhood. “Activists will stress the fact that Antonio Villaraigosa has refused to fulfill his promise to fire Guerdon Stuckey,” the release said. Stuckey, general manager of the city’s Animal Services Department, has been subject of repeated attacks, including a smoke bomb in his home. The demonstrations against Stuckey and other animal services officials have been going on for years as part of protests against what the league sees as delays in implementing a no-kill policy at the city’s six shelters as well as its treatment of animals. rick.orlov@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
