The Director General of the Libyan Export Development Centre, Mohamed El-Deeb, discussed with the Senior Advisor at the Turkish Commercial Attaché to Libya, Youssef Yildiz, on Sunday cooperation to facilitate exports of Libyan products to Turkey.

El-Deeb also raised the issues facing Libyan business owners with Turkish customs when participating in international exhibitions.

The Commercial Attaché at the Libyan Consulate General in Istanbul, Omar Derhoub, who attended the meeting along with an array of officials from the Libyan Economy Ministry, referred to the directives of Minister Muhammad Al-Hawij of the Economy and Trade concerning organizing working sessions and bilateral meetings between business owners and Libyan and Turkish companies.

The minister's decision allows the two sides to exchange experiences and create a genuine partnership that guarantees economic diversity in sources of income, Libya's Economy Ministry said. 

According to the ministry, the group agreed to submit a proposal to Al-Hawij to form a joint working team representing the Export Development Centre, the Libyan Standards and Criteria Centre, the commercial attachés in the two countries, the Foreign Trade Department of the ministry, and the relevant authorities to facilitate the entry of Libyan products into Turkey.
