Meanwhile, Thesaurem Travel Agency Ltd. indicated that, as President George Weah said at his press conference in January, that Liberia is open to reputable investors, this project will boost tourism in Liberia and should be unprecedented in all of Africa .

Recall that a law establishing a Tourism Authority has been voted. The Liberian Senate has agreed with the House of Representatives to enact legislation to create a tourism authority. The Liberian Senate and House of Representatives, in their separate arguments, said that the Liberia Tourism Authority Act 2020 will have a positive impact on the gross domestic product (GDP) of the government in terms of capacity building revenue generation and attracting the private sector. investment.

Legislators noted that the tourism sector is essentially driven by “private sector involvement”. Previously, tourism was a department of the Ministry of Information, leading to the argument that this does not give the bureau more leverage to realize its full potential, which in economic terms could result in low allocations of the central government budget.

Additionally, Thesaurum Travel Agency Ltd said in the interview: “Visitors see the beauty of the country and of course the endless beaches, great local produce and all the natural attractions the country has to offer. For the people of Little Bassa, and for all people in Liberia, this project will create jobs, open up business opportunities and boost the economy.
