MONROVIA, July 4 (LINA) – As a means of improving the business climate in Liberia through the use of digital platform, the Liberia Business Registry (LBR) on Wednesday launched a website and an online application platform to enable business people in and outside the country easily register their businesses online.
Speaking at the launch of the Website in Monrovia on Wednesday, LBR Registrar General Samson M. Dee said the new ‘state of the art’ website will reduce time, cost and complexity that have been associated with business registration.
The platform, according to Dee, will ensure that business registration can now be done in Liberia within less than 24 hours.
“The launch of this online application platform today is a testimony of President George Weah statement made to the Liberian people that the country was opened for business,” Dee stated.
According to him, the online application platform will also boost private sector development in the country.
For his part Deputy Information Minister for Technical Services Boakai Fofana who served as Chief Launcher for the program called on members of the business community to take advantage of the online application platform because it will drastically reduce the stress associated with business registration.
“The stress people used to go through to register businesses in Liberia is now the issue of the past,” Fofana said.
Also speaking, the Chief Executive Officer of the Millennium Challenge Account Liberia, Monie R. Captan, lauded the LBR for the initiative and urged them to create awareness that will educate people on the use of the online registration platform.
