Mutual Investments

a. Investment Climate in Liberia
Liberia is located in small countries of Africa with a population of around 4.4 million. It is one of the three West African countries most affected by ebola, which killed thousands of people in the continent in 2014. The health crisis in the country had negative impacts on the economy, including the reduction of agricultural production, the suspension of international flights, restrictions on transport and the closure of major market areas and international borders. Rubber and iron, the two major export products of the country, are highly affected by the fall in international prices. These negative developments have caused a significant contraction in the Liberian economy.

The country has a market-based economy open to foreign capital. Despite its rich underground resources, it is one of the poorest countries in the world.
Major sectors to be invested in include agriculture and agricultural trade, energy and electricity generation, infrastructure development, contracting and real estate, mining, manufacturing, transport and services.

The Liberian government is updating its institutions, investment policies and trade regulations to attract foreign investors to the country.

In 2010, the Law on the Establishment of a Commercial Court and the Law on the Strengthening of Small Enterprises were enacted in order to improve the investment environment in the country and to carry out commercial transactions in a safe manner.

The country has also made reforms and encouraged the establishment of the company to accelerate business registration processes.
