Arab Media Ministers Council named Libyan capital, Tripoli, the Arab media capital for 2022 in a meeting in Cairo in the presence of a Libyan delegation.

The council approved a UAE proposal to complete celebration of Dubai as 2021 Arab media capital and name Tripoli for 2022 as well as Lebanon's capital, Beirut, for 2023 and Bahrain's capital, Manama, for 2024.

Libya refused to celebrate Tripoli as 2020 Arab media capital due to the security conditions at the time and asked for its turn to be run the next year.
