The Libya Herald first appeared on 17 February 2012 – the first anniversary of the Libyan Revolution. Over the past 10 years, it has become a favourite go-to source on news about Libya, for many in Libya and around the world, regularly attracting millions of hits.
Our aim is to cover every aspect of society in Libya: politics, business, sport, culture, education, construction and infrastructure, health issues, social stories, opinions, jobs, events etc. Encouraged by growing interest in Libya, we printed our first publication the Libya Herald Supplement ‘Libya’s Investment Needs 2013’ in November 2012.
Since then we felt there was a need for a regular business magazine – and so Libya Herald: Business Eye, our second venture, made its debut on new Libya’s second anniversary 17 February 2013. Each edition of Libya Herald: Business Eye has a focus on a particular topic and general business features, as well as interviews with ministers, officials and leading members of the business community in Libya. There is also business and company news, along with information about upcoming events, such as trade fairs.
We published 8 issues of the Libya Herald Business Eye magazine, before pausing publication in 2014. We are now considering publishing our next issue for Q3 2022 and you are welcome to contact Sami Zaptia if you would like any more information about this issue or print advertising opportunities.
In order for us to continue providing these news services and expand our activities, from April 2014 – after over two years of providing news on Libya for free – we moved to restricting some of our content to paid-subscribers only. We value the great number of visitors who are regular readers of our site checking our news daily for the latest developments in Libya, so we continue to offer general visitors (non-paid subscribers) access to some Libya Herald content for free. If you want to stay up to date with all content in the Libya Herald during the year, then you can for a few dinars a day.
Our goal is to keep our readers in Libya and around the world, informed of latest news, opportunities and developments. But we also need your help too. We can’t have our eyes and ears everywhere. If you know of anything you think we should be writing about, let us know. We want to know and so does the rest of the world.
If it happens and it’s of interest, it will be in the Libya Herald. You can contact Managing Editor Sami Zaptia on [email protected]
