Liberia opens new chapter as 163rd country to join the World Trade Organization (WTO)

Press Release ( - MONROVIA, Liberia - Jul 14, 2016 - Thursday, 14th July 2016 promises to be one of those unforgettable days in Liberia’s history. It is a day Liberia dusts off memories of the tragic civil wars and recent Ebola epidemic that ravaged the country and emerge as the 163rd country to join the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The WTO deals with the global rules of trade between nations and its main function is to ensure that trade flows as smoothly, predictably and freely as possible. Liberia’s accession to WTO is expected to greatly benefit small businesses and consumers, improve economic growth, reduce trade barriers, lower the costs of imports, and improve private sector investment.

Liberians will also celebrate their independence day with Excel Magazine International and TeKay Designs in a special Washington DC fashion show with awards ceremony to benefit KDE Disability Africa Foundation (a 501C3 non-profit organization based in Texas) on July 31, 2016. Excel Magazine, an international magazine of global repute and USA based TeKay Designs partnership is poised to project the country as the new fashion and tourism hub of Africa. This platform will be utilized to attract and woo investors from various business sectors to come and invest in Liberia.

The fact that both opportunities are coming at this time for a country labeled as 5th poorest in the world, underscores the fact that it is time for the country to take its rightful place in the committee of nations.

It is indeed the time for Liberia. For Liberians, this is the chance to shine.
