Localisation of industry
Boulifa stressed the importance of holding this edition of the exhibition at this time, which he described as the right time to support the state’s efforts to localize industries and resume many industrial and service projects that need to open horizons for cooperation between the private sector and the government. In addition, there is the need to discover the development taking place in the world in various industrial fields through the participation of other countries in this exhibition.
Localisation then exports of surplus production
He added that this edition will witness the holding of specialized workshops and seminars in the field of technology transfer and the localisation of several industries that the Libyan private sector can carry out inside Libya to provide for local needs. At a further stage of the plan, the surplus can be exported abroad.
He said several interested specialists, academics and businessmen will participate in these seminars that are in the industrial field and its development.
