Financing for large projects is almost exclusively sourced from outside Liberia. Many large-scale projects, such as road construction and paving, are funded by international donors, including the United States, the World Bank, the IMF, the EU, the African Development Bank, the government of China, and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA). Procurements for these projects are opened to U.S. bidders through international competitive bids (ICB).
