The Mayor of Monrovia Feiffer Koijee Came To Town
We are so honored to receive the mayor of Monrovia, Jefferson T. Koijee, at Southern News Group to discuss how to promote the sister relationship between Houston and Monrovia.
Monrovia is the capital city of the west African country of Liberia. Founded in 1922, it is located on the Atlantic coast and is the country’s most populous city. With a population of more than one million, Monrovia is also the country’s economic, financial and culture center .
Under the leadership of Mr. Val Thompson, the two cities will become sister cities to promote cultural and economic ties.
Over the last several years, we have sponsored many events at the International Trade Center, especially with African countries We also have hosted two events with Rice University and the Texas African Summit.
This is time that we all need to work together and look to solve global issues. When the pandemic damaged the globe, a lot of poor nations did not have much ability to survive But this is a global issue.
We hope this sister city alliance will really help the African countries in many ways.
Mayor Koijee is such a young and vigorous young politician for Afirica. We now can see a bright future for his country too.
