The Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) has received a Toyota Hilux Pickup from UNDP, to boost implementation of the Domestic Resource Mobilization Strategy (DRM).
The vehicle was turned over by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) through its project "Strengthening National Capacities for Development Effectiveness” (C4DE).
The Head of LRA Thomas Doe-Nah, expressed appreciation to UNDP for its immense contributions to his institution.
At a brief ceremony held at the One UN House in Sinkor, Mr. Doe-Nah said the gesture is a clear demonstration of a partnership that continues to be strengthened and aimed at ensuring that Liberians reap the benefits of paying taxes.
He said the LRA will remain proactive and engaged with development partners in the roll out plan of the DRM.
“We remain proactive on the need to continue to sensitize our people on the importance of paying taxes,” says Doe-Nah
UNDP Team Leader for its Sustainable Economic Transformation Pillar, Dorsla Farcathy said UNDP remains a key and reliable partner to the Government of Liberia.
Mr. Farcathy recalled the enormous support from UNDP to the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA).
He mentioned the establishment and operationalization of a data center, the procurement of a scanner for the Roberts International Airport to mitigate illegal smuggling, as some of the benefits accrued by LRA, as a result of the partnership with UNDP.
Mr. Farcathy reaffirmed the Agency's commitment and support to the implementation of the DRM.
Mr. Thomas Doe-Nah later turned the keys of the vehicles over to the Deputy Commissioner General of the LRA, Aaron B. Kollie.
