THE DIRECTOR GENERAL’S MESSAGE FOR 2018

My fellow users and consumers of official statistics, I bring you heartfelt greetings on behalf of the Board of Directors, Management, and staff of LISGIS where we continue to strive through the help of the government and partners to produce credible and reliable data.

I also extend greetings to the President, His Excellency, Ambassador George Manneh Weah, for his recognition of statistics as a cross-cutting issue and evidence based tool for national development planning. We thank the President for the immense confidence reposed in our work.

We, therefore, count on the continuous support from the Government to provide the Statistics House of Liberia for the production and dissemination of quality statistics.

Special greetings also to the Vice President, Her Excellency, Madam Jewel Howard-Taylor, for her implicit confidence in the Statistics House of Liberia as well as her expressed and unwavering support to LISGIS. I pause to say, “Thank You”.

The Year 2018 will be a challenging one with plan to conduct the National Accounts Annual Survey (NAAS), the Liberia Demographic and Health Survey (LDHS), and the kickoff of the National Population and Housing Census (NPHC). The journey will be tough but we can safely say that the surveys and the census will be   successful relying on support from the Government of Liberia (GOL), Liberia’s Development Partners, as well as LISGIS Management Team and the robust and experienced field staff who always brave the storm to make it through the bushes and impassible roads in achieving these important milestones.

As we look with hope into a brand new era, we are optimistic that statistics and geo-information produced will be enhanced at all levels to better serve our nation. We believe that with greater support and consolidation in the harmonization of our work, LISGIS can do greater service to the nation. I believe, in my opinion that “No great Nation was ever built without their reliance on credible and reliable statistics. We need to measure and set bench marks at all times in order to know the progress we are making with our development programs as a developing country.   Liberia should be of no exception as we strive to be great. And this is only possible if all of us can come together keep our hands on the deck to make it happen. This is a commitment we have and should demonstrate for our country. 

Again, I appreciate the Government of Liberia and our Development Partners for going through a successful statistical journey 2017 and look forward to a more amazing journey through 2018. Let us enjoy the journey and uphold statistics.

I THANK YOU!!!
