Monrovia — The Chairman of the Board, at the Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas (ULAA), Mr. Alfred Sieh has lauded H.E. Ambassador Dee-Maxwell Saah Kemayah, Sr., for quickly restoring Liberia’s passport image after the U S State Department placed a travel restriction on the former Director of Passport and Visas at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Andrew Wonplo.

Mr. Sieh said what he and his team gathered at the ministry about the Liberian Passport currently is very impressive stating “We are taking the good news about the passport business back to our people in the diaspora; Mr. Minister, you and your team are doing a great job, continue to change the narrative, you get our support”.

While informing the minister of their plan to establish a Diaspora Development and Investment Bank in Liberia, the Board Chair said in July of this year, ULAA will host a major conference on investment in the United States for Liberians, which will bring together Liberians from Europe and Australia and other part of the world, with key interest of attracting funds from them for the bank, which will create many jobs for Liberians.

Discussing slew of national issues with the Dean of the Cabinet, Chairman Sieh opined that in the past, the National Legislature made laws that are on the books discriminating and excluding one group over the others, especially those in the diaspora, for some political reasons, noting that these laws are still on the books, which need to be repealed.

He said ULAA is grateful to President George Manneh Weah for all the affects he exhorted to lift the dual citizen debate during the just-ended December 8, referendum.
