Today a friend of mine who just got back from a two weeks vacation to Liberia, was talking about how the country needs to improve the service sector of the economy so as to attract more tourist, and visitors. we have always taken the tourism industries for granted in our economy, and i think it is time that the government take a serious look at this sector of the economy, our neighbors in the region such as Ghana have done a splendid job of making their country tourist friendly, as a result hundreds of jobs have been created. Liberia has beautiful beaches, lakes and waterfall, the sapo national park in the south east is one the most diverse and largest protected forest in the region, we can use these to our advantage, if only the government will pay a little more attention. I know the president has a lot on her plate right now, but think about this, it may be years before UN sections on our natural resources such as diamonds are lifted, so does it not make sense to explore other options? some countries in the world only depend on tourism for revenues, we are bless to not only have all these natural resources, but also a beautiful land, and a beautiful culture all we need to do is develop it and show it off.
