The Head of the Presidential Council (PC), Fayez Al-Sirrja, met Thursday with the Governor of the Central Bank of Libya (CBL) Al-Siddiq Al-Kabeer, the Head of the Audit Bureau, Khalid Shakshak, Finance Minister Faraj Bumatari and Economy and Industry Minister Ali Al-Essawi.

The officials reviewed the implementation of the economic reforms and the needed measures to make sure the reforms will be smoothly running through the state institutions.

The media office of Al-Sirraj reported also that the officials discussed several public service issues and the necessary support of the PC to the concerned authorities to get their jobs done.

The economic reforms were approved by the PC in a meeting with Al-Kabeer and Khalid Al-Mishri - the Head of the High Council of State as well as PC deputy head Ahmed Mitig.

The reforms started with slapping fees on foreign currency purchase transactions (180%.)

Al-Siddiq Al-Kabeer said on the margins of the Libyan British Business Council (LBBC) in Tunisia on Tuesday that the country would have a zero deficit rate in 2018 budget, adding that Libya's oil output had improved and inflation had dropped convincingly.
