Liberia is one of the oldest offshore jurisdictions. However, due to economic and political challenges of the 1990’s, Liberia’s status as a preferred jurisdiction fell to the wayside. Fortunately, Liberia has overcome many of the economic and political problems which have blighted its past. The increasing international recognition of Liberia’s dramatic turnaround is evident – most significantly by the December 2011 presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize Award to the recently re-elected Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
Recent attacks on the high profile offshore financial centers by the OECD and certain leaders of the G20 have driven professional service providers to once again seek out new jurisdictions. Many have rediscovered Liberia, a ‘new’ jurisdiction, with over a half century track record of providing professional services to the world’s financial and investment communities.
Liberian corporations are at the core of well-established private and public investments in all major financial sectors resulting in a significant percentage of global business activity being conducted through Liberian entities. Liberia is also home to the world’s second-largest ship registry, with a current fleet of nearly 3800 vessels of more than 124 million gross tons.
For all of your future corporate needs, choose LIBERIA — you won’t be disappointed.
