Liberia is a Western Africa low income country with a population of 5 million inhabitants. More than 60% of the population is under the age of 25. It is richly endowed with water, mineral resources, forests and has a climate favorable for agriculture. It mainly exports iron ore, rubber, diamonds, and gold. Diversification of the economy, development of infrastructures, institutions, medical sector and family planning, as well as security maintenance are the keys for the future growth of the country.
