LIBERIA’S INFORMATION MINISTER LEADS ASSESSMENT OF HISTORIC SITES FOR TOURISM PROMOTION

Date:

MONROVIA – Information Minister Jerolinmek Matthew Piah, accompanied by Deputy and Assistant Ministers of the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs & Tourism (MICAT), conducted an assessment of the historic National Museum on Broad Street and Providence Island. Providence Island is a national heritage site where freed slaves from the United States of America landed in 1822, leading to the establishment of Liberia.

Minister Piah emphasized that MICAT is prioritizing efforts to make these facilities functional as touristic attractions and mainstays in promoting Liberia’s rich historical and cultural heritage.

In addition to the National Museum and Providence Island, assessment visits are planned for several other cultural sites under the direct supervision and control of MICAT. These include the new designated site of the National Cultural Center in Marshall, Margibi County; the Besao Cultural Village in Bomi County; and the ruined William V.S. Tubman’s African Center of Arts and Culture in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County.

The assessments aim to evaluate the current state of these cultural sites, identify areas for improvement, and develop strategies to enhance their appeal to both domestic and international tourists. Minister Piah reiterated the government’s commitment to preserving Liberia’s cultural heritage and leveraging it to boost tourism and economic development.

The initiatives led by MICAT are part of broader efforts to showcase Liberia’s unique history, culture, and natural beauty, encouraging both local and international visitors to explore the country’s diverse attractions.
