He said attracting more tourists to the country will help to expose the unique quality of the country’s cultural values and natural heritage.
The UNESCO Assistant head of education made the call in an interview with a team of journalists Thursday following a brief discussion with Information Minister Lenn Eugene Nagbe at the Information Ministry in Monrovia.
Liberia is among 195 member countries of UNESCO which contribute to peace and security worldwide by promoting international collaboration through education, scientific and cultural reforms.
Tang, who is in the country on a three-day visit, said in furtherance of the long existing collaborative ties between UNESCO and the Liberian Government, he has held discussions with heads of the Ministries of Education, Youth and Sports, Labor and Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, among others.
“We have a project to support education and culture in Liberia and after my visit we will be discussing the next step and I am sure Liberia will further benefit from these collaborations,” he noted.
He disclosed the opening of a laboratory at the Fendell Campus of the University of Liberia on Thursday, July 14, which, he said, is also part of his entity’s support to education in the country.
In brief remarks, Information Minister Nagbe lauded UNESCO for its support to Liberia, and pledged the government's collaboration with the world body.
