IBI proudly participates in Official Launch of “Digital Liberia”
On March 22, 2017 the U.S. government in partnership with the Liberian government launched the USAID Digital Liberia and eGovernance Capacity Building Project, known as Digital Liberia. Having worked continuously in Liberia since 2006 including staying in the country throughout the Ebola crisis, IBI recognizes the importance of functional ICT systems for the government to be able to respond to such crises. Digital Liberia is co-implemented by IBI.
The U.S. Ambassador Christine Elder remarked at the project launch that, “This project is a milestone in efforts to digitalize government and the way it does business. For Liberia, it represents a crucial innovation that will contribute to the country’s socio-economic development, promote transparency, and enhance government’s responsiveness to its citizens.” Ambassador Elder added that, “communications systems are critical to enabling Liberian citizens and public institutions to prevent, detect, and respond to future public health crises.”
