The Minister of Industry and Minerals, Ahmed Abu Hessa, has discussed preparations to start a practical program that coordinates the entry of Egyptian investors to Libya, especially in the industrial zones and mining sector.

Minister Abu Hessa discussed the issue during a meeting with the Egyptian Minister of Trade and Industry, Nevin Jameh, in Cairo.

The visit aims to draw on the Egyptian experience in the mining sector and investment in the industrial zones, the ministry of industry said, disclosing that the minister will also conduct tours to some large factories in Egypt.

The step comes within the framework of a prior agreement signed during mutual visits in the previous and current year.
