Affected by the Ebola some time back and faced with a challenging economic environment, Liberia has had to face the after-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Abundant in natural resources such as iron ore, diamonds, gold, fertile soil, fishery, and forestry, the potential to tap into those resources remains limited. Various reforms are being activated to boost growth and improve recovery in some industries. The International Finance Corporation of Liberia advisory program is focusing on four fundamental areas to develop the economy: i) agriculture value chain development, ii) trade facilitation, iii) improving access to finance, and iv) business climate reform.
