The establishment of diplomatic relations between Jamaica and Liberia is historic, and is in line with the foreign policy objective of the Government to deepen engagement with the African continent, and to identify, together with opportunities for cultural, technical and people-to-people exchanges, specific opportunities for enhancing trade and investment

“I am so pleased that the day has come when we finally formalise diplomatic relations with Africa’s first republic. Significant informal connections already exist, but now the possibilities for cooperation between our two countries are endless,” Johnson Smith said
