Tunis, 24 January 2017:
A conference on potential Italian investment in Libya is to be held at the Libyan academy in Rome on 26 January. It is a collaboration between the Libyan embassy in Italy and the Italian-Libyan Chamber of Commerce.
The event will comprise three workshops aimed at promoting investment by Italian businesses and strengthening current partnerships as well as creating new ones. The workshops will cover healthcare, agriculture, infrastructure, education and tourism as well as environmental protection and waste collection systems, and oil and gas production management.
The conference is looking in particular at job creation in Libya as a way of stabilising the country’s conflicts and economic problems.
It will be the second such event to discuss renewing of Italian business activities in Libya. The first was held by the same Italian-Libyan Chamber of Commerce in September. With Italy upping its diplomatic engagement in Libya, being the first Western state to reopen its embassy in Tripoli, Italian business sees opportunities to build on this and develop ties.
