    “Primary revenue generator” for Lib? Let’s compare apples to apples. Why did the CEO refuse to answered how much AML has generated for itself over 20 plus years of operation in comparison to revenue generated for Liberia? Buchanan is still in darkness and GNN is giving high honors? No steel factories, no Pellet and Washing Plants while primary focuses are extractive export of raw minerals to be processed in overseas factories? FDI policy benefits AML tremendously while Liberia get crumbs of the table.
