Libyan Labor and Rehabilitation Ministry said it had signed an MoU with the National Oil Corporation and National Program for Small and Medium Projects to develop areas surrounding oil fields.

The Ministry said the signing was done in the presence of the Minister Al-Mahdi Al-Ameen, NOC Chairman Mustafa Sanallah, and deputy minister of economy Rajab Khalil at the NOC headquarters in Tripoli.

The Ministry said the MoU will carry out a development project in areas around oil fields and ports by enabling youths within training programs.

"This MoU is part of many initiatives the Ministry carried out lately in south Libya. This cooperation among state institutions is very important, especially in areas where development projects are essentially needed for the cities and for employing the youths." Al-Ameen said.
