Secretary Powell traveled to New York City on February 6 to lead the United States delegation to the International Reconstruction Conference on Liberia.
The 2-day conference, hosted by the United Nations, the World Bank and the United States, along with the National Transitional Government of Liberia, provided a forum for the international community to consider how best to promote political, economic and social recovery in Liberia. It also provided an opportunity for those international supporters to pledge financial and in-kind support to help in Liberia’s recovery and reconstruction from conflict.
