US companies look forward to rebuilding Libya's infrastructure and economy
The American Chamber of Commerce in Libya (AmCham Libya) hosted a virtual meeting with US Ambassador to Libya Richard Norland and American companies on Tuesday to exchange views regarding the evolving political process in Libya and prospects for improving the business climate for US investment in Libya.
The AmCham Libya said the American companies had expressed a strong desire to deploy their technical expertise and financial resources to help rebuild Libya’s infrastructure and economy.
Meanwhile, US Ambassador Norland underscored that the ongoing political process in Libya provided a unique opportunity for Libyan political and economic leaders to achieve these reforms and make Libya a strong and reliable partner for private sector investment.
“The business leaders emphasized that greater investment in Libya required long-term political stability, transparent economic decision-making, an agreement on long-term revenue management, and a more enabling business environment, including the Central Bank’s timely and consistent approval of letters of credit that Libyan importers require to honor payments to their foreign business partners.” The AmCham Libya remarked.
The American Chamber of Commerce in Libya added that it "joins the United States Embassy in supporting American businesses’ commitment to investing in a more prosperous future for Libya and its people".
