Liberia News

The economy of Liberia which was shattered to a large extent during the Civil War (1989-96), was mainly based on extensive production of rubber and iron ore mining.  Apart from iron ore, other minerals and metals like diamonds, kyanite, gold and barite are also mined here. Processing of rubber and foodstuffs and manufacture of building and construction materials also form integral parts of Liberian industrial activities. Rubber, timber, iron ore, diamonds, cocoa, and coffee provide the bulk of the export earnings; fuels, chemicals, machinery, transportation equipment, manufactured goods, and foodstuffs are the principal imports.
