Yamaha Conducts Fiber Glass Boats assessment in Liberia
Monrovia – A Representative of the Japanese Company, Yamaha, is in Liberia as guest of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority.
The visit of the Yamaha Company Representative is part of efforts gear towards conducting first assessment on the possibilities to manufacturing fiber glass boats in Liberia.
The Fiber Glass Boats are intended to enhance the operations of artisanal fishermen across the nine coastal communities in Liberia.
The Japanese Yamaha Representative Motoki Watanabe, who is taken on a tour of fishing communities in Montserrado, Bomi and Cape Mount Counties Tuesday held closed door discussions with NaFAA’s Director General Emma Metieh Glassco.
Following their discussions NaFAA Director General disclosed that the Liberian and Japanese governments are on course with the possibilities of potential business investment in Liberia for the manufacturing of fiber glass boat for artisanal fishermen.
It can be recalled that in October of this year, Japanese Ambassador accredited to Ghana paid a courtesy call on the Director General of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority, Mrs. Emma Metieh Glassco, in an effort to strengthen the existing cordial relations between the two countries.
