Liberia Company Formation Requirements

What are the requirements for company formation in Liberia? The only sector you cannot operate in is real estate trading and ownership. You only need one director and one shareholder. Still, if there are more than three shareholders, the company must then have three directors, who can be of any nationality and reside overseas. Shareholders can also be corporate entities.
