Last week, the Government of Liberia received a grant of EUR 10 million (USD 11.2 million) from the European Union (EU). The EU disbursed the money directly into the treasury account of the Government to support the budget of the Republic of Liberia. This is the third payment under the EU's budget support programme after a first payment of EUR 29.2 million (USD 33 million) in 2015 and EUR 16 million (USD 18 million) in 2016.
