LNP and AML Forge Strategic Partnership for Safe Equipment Transport

MONROVIA: In adherence to public safety regulations, the Liberia National Police (LNP) and ArcelorMittal Liberia (AML) have inked a memorandum of understanding (MOU) aimed at ensuring the secure movement of AML’s oversized equipment from Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, to Tapata, Namba County.

In past, Honorable Gregory Coleman, Inspector General of Police, highlighted the necessity of police escorts to facilitate the safe transport of the materials.

However, due to logistical constraints, the LNP could only commit to providing one escort vehicle instead of the requested two.

Coleman urged AML to review their movement strategy to align with public safety concerns.

In response to the LNP’s request, AML pledged to provide two new police vehicles to enhance police operations during the transportation of oversized equipment.

ArcelorMittal Liberia stands as the largest private sector investor and employer in Liberia, contributing significantly to the country’s revenue and economic growth.

Beyond financial contributions, AML invests in Liberia’s future through education and community development initiatives, such as scholarships and infrastructure projects.

President Joseph Nyuma Boakai and Mr. Lakshmi Mittal, Executive Chairman of ArcelorMittal, recently met in Monrovia to strengthen the longstanding partnership between AML and the Liberian government.
