Liberia: Diaspora Remittance Contributes Third of Country’s GDP to Economy, Second Highest in the World

These remittances, according to World Bank’s report account for third of the country’s GDP, an indispensable fulcrum of Liberia’s economy while foreign aid contributes to less than half of the Diaspora remittance to the country’s GDP. These staggering remittances make Liberia the second highest recipient country of Diaspora remittances, coming second to Tajikstan and the highest in Africa”.
