http://www.worldbank.org/ida/country/... - Liberia's Minister of Finance, Amara M. Konneh, speaks in April 2013 about IDA's support to the country's development. IDA is the World Bank's fund for the 82 poorest countries in the world.

IDA is helping to bring high-speed, affordable internet access to Liberians by currently financing the installation of fiber-optic cables: http://bit.ly/12pUc1X
IDA has played a major role in supporting the rehabilitation of basic infrastructure in the last four years by helping to:
• Resurface 24 km of city streets and rebuild the Vai Town Bridge in Monrovia.
• Rehabilitate 25 km of the road to Buchanan; work is progressing on the remaining 56.5 km which will finish in less than one year.
• Establish a Port Authority and the promotion of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) concession contract with one of the world's largest port terminal operators.
• Support the Monrovia City Corporation in collecting and disposing of 60% of the city's solid waste, in addition to creating the framework of a solid municipal government.
