The United States and Liberia boast one of the largest trade relationships in the world, with bilateral investment and trade totaling $1.6 trillion annually. Liberia’s friendly corporate tax system, close geographic location, and common culture of democratic principles make Liberia an excellent investment opportunity for American companies looking to expand their business profile.
The U.S Embassy works to assist American businesses and potential investors by maintaining close contacts with the Government of Liberia and the local business community. We provide balanced assessments and information to American companies and potential investors on general business environments and opportunities in Liberia.
We also seek to help American businesses wishing to find local partners or do business in Liberia by bridging the links with Liberia’s principal private sector trade and investment organizations, local business associations, as well as leading entrepreneurs.
The economic & commercial section of the Embassy works closely with Liberia’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry and serves as a liaison to the key private sector trade and investment organizations including the Liberia Business Association and Chamber of Commerce. The section serves as the Embassy’s focal point for promoting the African Growth & Opportunity Act (AGOA), coordinating AGOA trade-related activities with the public and private sectors. Finally, by virtue of our partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce, the section can provide certain branded commercial services to American companies upon request, such as the fee-based Gold Key Service and International Company Profile.
