For the past five years,there has been a fragile peace,but many traces of the war remain. One year ago,a waste disposal project was finally started in Monrovia.

However, Liberia still faces a major youth unemployment problem. Many young workers are unskilled and lost out on their educational opportunities because of the civil war, and are often forced into informal sector jobs. Nearly 90% of Liberia's workforce is in the informal sector, with another 77.9% in "vulnerable em...

Since the start of construction operations in 2006, ArcelorMittal Liberia has created...

Gabriel Fernandez, Liberia's National Social Protection Coordinator, says his country shows the importance of financial and fiscal discipline. One of the new Liberian government's first actions was to reinstate financial and fiscal stability to the country.
