A memorandum of understanding on labour exchange was signed during talks on Thursday with his Tunisian counterpart Abdelwahab Maater. Following the signing, Rujbani said at a joint press conference that Tunisian workers and businessmen should “head immediately to Libya”.
He added that the MOU would enable Libya to take advantage of human resources from Tunisia to help it rebuild its economy.
Libya lacks many of the skills found in Tunisia, notably in areas such as plumbing, electrical wiring, construction and middle management IT and healthcare (nurses and care attendants).
