Reinforced Dubai Breakthrough -McGill Refreshes Healthy Ties, Secures Reciprocal Visit

The clamor of the civilized world—both from the East and West—to visit and do business in the United Arab Emirates and its satellite havens particularly singles out Dubai as a diplomatic partner of choice. Its development pace is at jet-speed and its infrastructure stunning. Since the advent of the George Manneh Weah administration in 2018, Liberia’s relations with that Middle-Eastern “paradise” has grown from strengthen to strength, extracting enormous support for the people of Liberia. The President’s Chief of Office Staff, Nathaniel F. McGill, has been combing the plush city, talking to a horde of investors and government officials towards strengthening bilateral ties and securing more commitments for Liberia’s development. As The Analyst reports, Minister McGill has made a giant breakthrough as he has secured commitment from the Second in Command of that country to, amongst other things, pay a visit Liberia next year.

The weeklong visit of the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Mr. Nathaniel F. McGill, to the United Arab Emirates, mainly the city of Dubai, is reportedly paying off in many ways, and the rather happy visitor is not hiding his feelings and appreciation.

In a yesterday, December 19, 2021, Facebook post which has gone viral, Minister McGill revealed the elevating exploits he has made during his visit to that country.

He wrote: “I am highly elated to hold discussions with His Highness Dr. Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Zayed AL Nahyan, Advisor to HH The President of the UAE here in Dubai.”

According to Minister McGill, his host is “not a small potatoe”, as Liberian parlance goes for an extremely resourceful person.

“With a net worth of 30 billion dollars,” he said, “HH Dr. Bin Khalifa is the son of the President of the UAE, Chairman of the SBK Holdings and a member of the UAE’s equestrian federation. He is among the board members of the Executive Council of Abu Dhabi.”

The Chief of Office Staff to President Weah also reported that the discussions held with his counterpart “essentially cemented an alliance built on mutual interest of development, economic cooperation and foreign direct investments in the mining, aviation and other sectors”.

Minister McGill said he did extend an invitation to HH Dr. Bin Khalifa to attend Liberia’s Bicentennial commemoration next year to which he agreed.

Dr. Khalifa, according to Mr. McGill, acknowledged with much appreciation “the sustained progress Liberia has made under President George Manneh Weah and promised to lead a high level delegation at next year’s celebrations”.
