I was what you would call the media deputy for commerce. Basically the Ministry of Commerce is really called - then it was then Commerce, Industry and Transportation. It was basically involved in arranging trade and commerce within and without the Republic of Liberia. Getting businesses to - finding trading partners, identifying commodities for trade, what comes in, what goes out, pricing, looking at foreign prices, following up on the consumer price index locally, all of that fell under that office.
