The UK-Liberia Trade Mission will take place today in a hybrid format.

The event will bring private and public sector stakeholders in Liberia and the UK together to discuss opportunities for investment in Liberia. The primary focus of this investment will be energy transition, but investment prospects across Liberia’s private sector and the ease of conducting business in Liberia—where the US dollar is legal tender alongside the Liberian dollar—will also take precedence in the meeting.

In the short-term, expect Liberian government agencies to highlight the benefits associated with greater investment in their nation, specifically in private mining and energy.

In the medium-term, expect support to continue for the private sector as Liberia hopes to reap previously untapped and desirable dividends from tourism.
