Manufacturing in Liberia has a wealth opportunities in plastic and rubber goods such as tires, shoes, pipes, toys, furniture, as well as bio-fuel etc. with plentiful raw materials, limited competition, abundant and low-cost labor, a strategic coastal

location, ports, and its role in the regional and sub-regional economic groupings of ECOWAS and MRU make Liberia the perfect staging ground to produce goods for these markets as well.

Liberia’s manufacturing sector is a virgin territory with unlimited potential. Liberia’s youthful and energetic population accounts for over 60% of the country’s 4.1 million people, with the majority under the age of 25. This pool of potential workers presents a wonderful opportunity for the manufacturing industry.
