At A Glance
Liberia has bountiful raw materials, limited competition, and abundant low-cost labor. More specifically, given Liberia's natural assets, investors might consider food processing, the manufacture of rubber goods, and forestry products.

- Investments in processing equipment would allow for value addition through the manufacture of juices, jams, jellies, and other products.
- Rubber goods with investment potential include tires and tubes, inflatables, sporting goods, and surgical products. Decorative items made of rubber wood, which is currently used primarily as firewood, can also find a niche market.
- As the country's timber industry restarts, there are opportunities for value addition in forestry products. Specific opportunities include sawmilling, pulp and paper production, plywood and particle-board production, and furniture manufacturing.
