Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on June 1st visited OPIC, where she spoke about the country’s recovery from the Ebola crisis and its longstanding development goals and progress. Sirleaf, pictured here with OPIC President and CEO Elizabeth L. Littlefield, held an informal Q&A with OPIC staff and discussed the need for more infrastructure throughout Africa, the important role diaspora investors can play and the reforms by many African institutions that have improved the investment climate.

“The success stories in Africa are real,” said Sirleaf “but we continue to face challenges in Africa, no doubt.” She stressed that the key to so many of Africa’s development challenges was more power, to support its growing population and its increasingly sophisticated industries.
