MONROVIA (Reuters) – Liberia’s new President George Weah has ordered a review of all existing concession agreements entered into by previous administrations, the presidency said in a statement on Wednesday.

It said a committee would “review and ensure that all contracts entered into by the government of Liberia and concessionaires are executed according to agreed principles in accordance with the laws of Liberia.”
