How TecEx Can Help You Import into Liberia
Unlike its distant neighbor Ghana, Liberia is struggling to gain momentum in its IT sector. Similarly, its health sector has struggled despite international aid providing training and equipment. The failure of these two sectors was brought to light by the Ebola virus crisis in 2016, which crippled the economy. During this outbreak, those in government and the private sector attempted to use technology in overcoming the virus. But in a country with a mere 8.6%, internet penetration success was limited.
Since then, the Liberian government has acknowledged the need for improvements in ICT which would benefit the economy. Recently, they have announced changes in policy and plans to improve both infrastructure and services.
Importing IT equipment into the country remains a challenge. Local customs require both pre-and post-inspection of goods and lead times are extremely long. Contact one of our TecEx specialists for a tailor-made solution to help clear your goods through customs quickly and reliably.
