A delegation from the Government of National Unity (GUN) has participated in the inauguration ceremony of the BlueMed submarine cable, which connects communications between the European and African continents.

According to a government report, the project is implemented by the Italian company Sparkle, a major provider of the Internet and international call exchange services.

The Libyan delegation to the ceremony was headed by Minister of State for Communication and Political Affairs, Walid Al-Lafi, and included chairman and several members of the Board of Directors of the Libyan Post, Telecommunications and Information Technology Holding Company.

The BlueMed project, with a capacity of 25 terabytes per second, is one of the most important projects currently underway to connect the two continents across the Mediterranean.
