History

Liberia.jpg

With regards to bilateral relations between Germany and Liberia, Germany has become an important partner of Liberia. Until the outbreak of civil war in late 1989, Liberia was one of Germany’s priority countries in terms of development cooperation. The German private sector had a strong presence in the country. With its wealth of natural resources (in particular iron ore, timber, rubber, gold and diamonds as well as proven offshore oil reserves), Liberia remains an attractive prospective market for German investors.

Acting on behalf of the Federal Government, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is advising the Liberian government on the reconstruction of the country’s transport sector as well as on natural resource governance and renewable energy.  Environmental cooperation focuses on providing support for the Taï-Sapo National Park (also involving Côte d’Ivoire).
