Liberia Accedes to World Trade Organization


Liberia’s application to join the World Trade Organization was approved this week at the WTO’s Tenth Ministerial Conference in Nairobi, Kenya.


President Sirleaf said:

“Liberia’s accession to the WTO marks another turning point in our history, particularly in our journey of economic transformation for inclusive growth. Our transformation can neither be done alone, nor in isolation, but by forging partnerships. We appreciate the collective efforts of our partners who have made this accession a resounding success. We fully subscribe to the African common position on strengthening the rules-based multilateral trading system to create the Africa that we want.”Link
