Steel Deal Renegotiated

The original deal had been criticised by lobby group Global Witness, which said it allowed Mittal [Steel] to opt out of human rights and environmental laws.

Total investment has now been increased to $1bn and the government retains ownership of the port and railway but other details are unclear.

Congratulations to Global Witness on this apparent victory.

Shouldn't you congratulate the Liberian government that renegotiated the deal? After all, the president promised to do it.

The Liberian Government was in the the final stage of discussion with the iron ore giant when Global Witness made their analysis. I support the writer that is suggesting that the President be congratulated.
