Liberia's economy has been on the rise in recent years, with the World Bank reporting that the country's GDP grew by 4.9% in 2019. This growth was driven by the country's agricultural sector, which accounted for nearly half of the country's GDP. The mining sector also contributed significantly to the economy, with iron ore exports accounting for around 25% of total exports. The country also has a growing tourism industry, with the number of international visitors increasing by 8.5% in 2019. The government has also implemented a number of reforms to improve the business environment, including the introduction of a new investment code and the establishment of a one-stop shop for investors. These reforms have helped to attract foreign investment, with the World Bank reporting that foreign direct investment in Liberia increased by 11.5% in 2019. Overall, Liberia's economy is showing signs of improvement, and the country is well-positioned to continue its economic growth in the years to come.
