The Domestic Resource Mobilization Project funded by the African Development Bank is in line with APRM Pillar Two (Economic Governance and Management). It is under Phase 2 of the Integrated Project Financial Management Reform Project (IPFMRP 2).

The Project is expected to be implemented in the fifteen (15) political subdivisions of the country by the APRM National Secretariat.

Others participants were women organizations leaders, the business community, local government authorities, motorcyclists and drivers.

Meanwhile, APRM Executive Director Dax Sua has commended the MFDP Minister and APRM National Focal Point Honorable Samuel D. Tweah , Jr for his outstanding leadership and technical support to the APRM Liberia Country Program.
