BENEFITS OF LIBERIAN COE AND CDC

If you ever go to any seaport in America and look at the flags on the container ships; you will notice something that appears a little similar to America's flag. These flags have one star on the blue field - the Liberian flag. Liberia is a country on the West African coast; surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean.

Liberia is now the second-largest maritime ship registry in the world behind Panama. It has +4,500 vessels registered under its flag, accounting for 12% of ships worldwide. In the late-1960s, Liberia's was the enormous ship registry in the world. The Liberian Ship Registry is open to any ship owner in the world and accepts all kind of vessel as long as it meets the Registry standards.
