MONROVIA, LIBERIA – In a surprising turn of events, the Minister of Commerce, Mawine Diggs, has made the decision to shut down the Ministry of Commerce for Christmas celebrations. This move has left many business people in Liberia, both foreigners and Liberians, feeling shaken and perplexed.

Minister Diggs, known for her controversial decisions, has chosen to prioritize the festive season over the day-to-day operations of the Ministry. With the closure of the Ministry, it is expected that various services and activities related to commerce will be temporarily halted.

The implications of this closure have raised concerns among the business community. Many are questioning the timing of the decision, as the holiday season usually sees an increase in commercial activities. Foreign investors and local entrepreneurs are unsure how this shutdown will impact their businesses and the overall economy.
