Liberia is open for business with great opportunities for investors. Self-sufficiency in food production is key to Liberia’s economic recovery as agriculture continues to be the dominant sector in the Liberian economy, accounting for more than half the GDP and about 70% employment.

There is ongoing recovery of Liberia’s infrastructure:

  • There are four telecommunication companies operating in the country
  • Wireless Internet
  • Hundred of miles of repaired roads
  • Multiple flights a week from The United States to Belgium and Liberia
  • Light in the city
  • Principal crops grown in Liberia include rice (the nation’s staple food come mostly from imported sources), sugar cane, cassava, oil palm, coffee, and cocoa. Fruits grown in Liberia include banana, papaya, mango, and pineapple, and citrus fruits such as orange, grape fruit, tangerine and lime. Natural resources include iron ore, timber, diamonds, gold, and rubber.
