GOL to set up ‘High Tech’ Printing Press
The Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism is concluding plans and negotiation for the setting up of a state-of-the-art printing press that will engage in the printing of license plates, books, magazines and newspapers; among others.
Deputy Minister D. Robert W. Kpadeh Jr. told New Liberia Wednesday that upon completion of the negotiation with a private partner, the Central Processing Incorporated—government own printing press—will be revitalized to print those materials.
The Central Processing Incorporated was very active before the civil war, but has yet to regain its prewar status.
The Deputy Minister for Technical Services further disclosed that the printing press will print educational materials and would have the capacity to print ballot papers and other national documents, including birth, marriage and death certificates.
“This high tech printing press will reduce the burden on National Government of the cost of printing those documents in its daily workings,” Deputy Minister Kpadeh said.
He said the printing press will put the Government of Liberia in the position to lead the way in the printing industry.
The news of the revitalized Central Printing Incorporated is being met with high enthusiasm and adds to the emerging profile of Deputy Minister Kpadeh and generally the administration of Honorable Lewis Brown.
Already, the Minister is being credited for revitalizing the New Liberia newspaper and resuscitating the Liberian News Agency (LINA).blog comments powered by Disqus
