As soon as peace has been re-installed you will meet friendly and hardworking people in Liberia. Liberia is a paradise with tropical beaches - a heaven to go for angling, surfing, swimming, and play some golf in the western bulge of Africa. Only less than 4.500 flying-miles from New York and nearly 3.200 miles from London.
Potentially, Liberia is "The Gateway to Africa". Its soil is unimaginably rich. If one were to stick a broom in the ground it would grow immediately (so to speak!). A true paradise with exotic fruits, valuable natural resources, raw materials, mountains, swamps, tropical woods, wild parks and kilometers long white sandy beaches with palm-trees. When successfully restored, its infrastructure will enable Liberia to become a top tourist destination. In spite of the severe consequences of the civil war, one will not encounter apathy but energetic, inventive and pragmatic people. Very inspiring! This surprising attitude combined with the limitless opportunities shall transform Liberia into a very prosperous country again.
LIBERIA has it all
Capes & rivers, colonial style wide porch houses, 350 miles white sandy beaches punctuated with shallow lagoons and mangrove swamps. Untouched prime forest, with ponds, creeks, streams, hills and lakes. Abundant wildlife with rare mammals. Fresh air in evergreen surroundings and hospitality. Soon, Liberia welcomes all with open doors; tourists and business people.
LIBERIA has it all for business people
Africa is the continent that has almost all the world's reserves of the scarcest and most precious minerals, the kimberlitic & platinum group minerals: platinum, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium, and osmium. Most of these minerals are, but un-explored in Liberia. They are used in minute amounts in electronic and space-age materials, medical instruments, and other high precision devices and some go on the world market at $16,000 per kilogram (2,2 lbs). Africa produces more than 60 metal and mineral products and is a major producer of several of the world’s most important minerals and metals including Gold, PGE’s, Diamonds, Uranium, Manganese, Chromium, Nickel, Bauxite and Cobalt.
Liberia is blessed with sunshine, unique eco-climates and a natural abundance of "fruits", flowers and plants, unseen in the western world. The opportunities are enormous because the global village is always looking to taste new things. There are so many examples of natural products, unknown to most, which have not been commercially exploited. Liberia is one of the world's leading rubber producers. Tobacco and cocoa grows abundant and agriculture is very suitable to cultivate vegetables and rice, medicinal herbs and peppers. The possibilities are, to say the least, very exciting. The future lies with those who have the vision and drive to develop these new products.
Liberia was founded by Americans in the 19th century so that freed slaves could resettle back in Africa. Monrovia was named after U.S. President James Monroe, and was founded during his term by the American Colonization Society. The first town was established in 1822 on Providence Island. The settlers, or the Americo-Liberians, were engaged in a number of disputes with the indigenous population for many years.
