Liberia Makes Case At Dubai Expo 2020 To Attract Business Opportunities   

MONROVIA, Dec. 1  (LINA) – The Minister of State Without Portfolio, Trokon A. Kpui, and also head of Liberia’s Delegation at the Dubai Expo 2020 has declared Liberia open for business to the international world as a means of steering growth and development in the country.

“We invite all of you to take advantage of the unique opportunities for investment in the Liberian economy, and to join us in Liberia as Partners in Progress,” the head of the Liberian delegation noted.

Speaking Tuesday at the Dubai Expo 2020, the Liberian head of delegation narrated that as conservation has become a priority, Liberian parks, such as the Sapo National Park and Native Reserves, and the Mount Nimba Nature Reserves have become an important part of Liberia’s national heritage.

He added that Liberia hosts more than a million acres of cultivated rubber trees at Firestone Plantations Company, making it one of the largest rubber plantations in the world.

“Our lands are fertile and Monrovia, Liberia’s capital city, remains the wettest capital of the world.  Our extractive sectors, mainly iron ore and gold, over the years have been essential engines for economic growth,” Minister Kpui emphasized.

He stressed that Liberia has a total land area of One Hundred eleven Thousand Three Hundred Seventy square kilometers (111,370 Km^2), including Ninety Six Thousand Three Hundred Sixty Square Kilometer (96,360 km^2) of land and Fifteen Thousand Fifty Square Kilometer (15,050 Km^2) water.

Liberia said Kpui is separated from its neighbors by natural and artificial boundaries; on the east, the boundary that separates Liberia and Ivory Coast is the Cavalla River; on the west, the longest part of the boundary that separates Liberia from Sierra Leone is the Mano River. On the north, the boundary that separates Liberia and Guinea is mostly mountains, streams, and artificial lines, while the Atlantic Ocean forms the southern boundary of Liberia.

In a brief overview of the nation’s history, Kpui narrated that the country was founded by free slaves from the United States of America and declared its independence on July 26, 1846; making it the first independent country in Africa.

“We are known as the ‘NATION OF FIRST’ in Africa. In 2005, we elected the first female president in Africa.  And again, in 2017, we elected the first professional soccer player as President of a country. Our love of Liberty and Freedom, which defines us as Liberians, allowed us to do so,” the Liberian envoy stated.
