Ten Libyan youth arrived in Italy Sunday to start a six-month paid internship with different Italian companies, the IOM reported Monday.
The internships come within the framework of the IOM Youth-Mediterranean programme (Y-MED). The IOM said the initiative promotes skills enhancements through circular migration paths.
The IOM explained that it had partnered with Benghazi and Tripoli universities for the preselection of participants, who also attended intensive Italian language courses before departure.
The program is financed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Collaboration in Italy and implemented by IOM missions in Italy and Libya, in close coordination with the Italian Embassy in Libya.
