Monrovia, Liberia: President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has welcomed and encouraged more investment opportunities in Liberia as a means strengthening the economy to create more jobs in Liberia. She said: “The service is good and will be needed in countries such as ours, as we seek more partnerships to improve the lives of the people”. 
According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the remarks when she received in audience the Director of Pathway International, Gathoni F. Mungai and Chief Executive Officer, Simon Karo of Pathway International at her Foreign Ministry office on Tuesday, November 22, 2016
She assured Director Gathoni F. Mungai and CEO Simon Karo that Liberia welcomes such initiates especially when it has to do with saving lives because according to her patients  will be able to access the best treatment at the highest quality and most affordable cost. She however informed Madam Mungai and Karo that the relevant Ministry and Agency will be informed and appropriate arrangement made for them to meet with Liberia’s health authorities headed by Dr. Bernice T. Dahn to further look at the details and the possibilities of establishing Pathway International in Liberia. 

She commended Pathway International for the visit and encouraged them to produce more narratives on the services provided in an effort to be more explanatory to citizens and residents for better and clear information-sharing. She expressed interest in making good opportunities and in building partnership with Pathway International.

For her part, Director Gathoni F. Mungai thanked President Sirleaf for the audience and said Pathway International works hand in hand with doctors and does a remarkable job of connecting patients to excellent doctors.  She said if Pathway can be established next door in Abidjan, then what’s about Liberia? She emphasized that Pathway International works with several hospitals, diagnostic clinics, pharmacies, labs and consultancy services and other health providers, and hence understands the complexities involved in handling international medical travelers. Pathway handles the patient and attendees travel logistical needs as well.

She pointed out that Pathway International offers the following services, which include but not limited to access to world class health-care doctor and facilities, travel arrangements including air ticketing, accommodations and transfers, visa processing, medical attendant services (nurses and/ or doctors) among others.The Director and team depart the country Wednesday, November 23, 2016 for Nairobi, Kenya.

Pathway International is trusted by doctors and patients because the philosophy and mission of the organization reflects a deep commitment to the highest level of medical care and patient’s respect. The entire Pathway International team is fully aligned with the ideology of saving lives, doing good and caring for patient’s health and well-being.

Meanwhile, President Sirleaf has officially closed the one-day Liberia-UK Trade and Investment Forum held in the Ball Room of the Monrovia City Hall in Monrovia with the view of looking into some of the difficulties that came out of the deliberations among stakeholders and partners, adding “We will initiate additional dialogue to look into the outcome”.

The Liberian leader said she looks forward to receiving a full report from the National Investment Commission (NIC), and as well briefing from Ambassador David Belgrove, British Ambassador to Liberia because according to her there are some bold steps that need to be worked on. She used the occasion to congratulate all of the participants including partners for contributing their efforts to the UK-Liberia forum which she described as “great one”.
