Liberia, officially the Republic of Liberia, is a country on the west coast of Africa, bordered by Sierra Leone, Guinea, Côte d'Ivoire, and the Atlantic Ocean. Liberia has a hot equatorial climate with most rainfall arriving in summer with harsh winds in the dry season. The climate has been made even more extreme by the changes of global temperatures due to global warming.
The nation of Liberia depends heavily on iron ore and rubber exports, foreign direct investment, and exports of other natural resources, such as timber. Agricultural products include livestock, including goats and pigs, as well as rice, the staple food. They are looking to expand their agricultural industry, particularly their fishing and mining industries as well.
Trade and Industry
Trade has become an integral part of the Liberian economy as well, in recent years the GDP and per capita income of the nation has grown to staggering new levels and the nation hopes this trend will continue in the future. This success has partly been attributed to government created economic reform policies, as well as direct foreign investment.
Nearly all of the energy and electricity required by Liberia is produced by hydroelectric dams, as well as oil-fired plants. This makes Liberia an energy independent nation, which is very rare in today's world. Furthermore, this has prompted Liberia to research other forms of renewable resources, such as wind and solar.

The nation is also known for its extensive decorative quilt work, producing some of the most famous quilt and quilters in our time. Global companies
