Monrovia,Liberia - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says the future of the country’s economic growth is still “severely challenged” attributing it to the Ebola virus disease that struck Liberia last year which not only negatively impacted the health and social systems but the economy.
“Sharp declines in domestic food production, mining activities, cross border trade, transport services and hospitality led to a dramatic decline in our growth rate: from a projected 5.9 percent to an initial -0.4 percent; although later revised to 1 percent,” the Liberian leader said.

The inhabitants of these camps – about 240,000 of them across three other districts of Assam – fled from their homes after 81 people were killed in what now seems like a well-planned attack.
