Led by Africa's first freely and democratically elected female head of State, H. E. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, in 2013, Liberia's GDP grew by 8.7 percent; higher than the 8.3 percent growth recorded in 2012. The growth in 2013 was driven mainly by increased activities in the mining sector together with continued expansion in the services industry. This impressive growth also reflects the impact of public investments and policy choices made over a very short period of time - prioritizing the rebuilding of road networks to allow access to markets and suppliers; upgrading of the telecommunications and electrical infrastructure to make it easier to do business, increasing access to basic social services, and stabilizing the macroeconomic environment.
Additionally, by automating critical government operations, the interaction of the people, business, and the Government has become much easier; new jobs have been created and living standards improved; registration and startup of new businesses are easier and the negotiation and signing of new concession contracts have become more transparent and accountable. The economic growth also reflects the revival of private initiatives to rebuild and recover productive assets made dormant by years of civil conflict - as a result of the growing optimism about the direction of the country.
Against this background, they believe that well-managed businesses in high potential niches can be positioned to achieve exceptional results. The keys to successful investment will be to manage risk properly; to craft strategies specifically for this market; and to transfer, through best global practices and proper timing, practical adaptation, and innovative skills.See more
