The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah has said that his government aims to put back Tripoli on "the map of international investment," and make it, once again, a destination of attraction for its Arab and African neighbors as well as the rest of the world.
Speaking at the opening of the 49th Tripoli International Fair, Dbeibah said what Libya was experiencing now was not available in the years of war and division, warning that his government worked on construction, development, peace, and the completion of all projects that had been suspended for decades.
Dbeibah also said that the Tripoli International Fair was one of the oldest fairs in Africa and the Arab region, in addition to being the first Arab fair to join the membership of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events. He added that it was also a founding member of the Arab Federation for Exhibitions and Conferences in 1995.
The Prime Minister explained that the organization of the new edition of the fair is a positive indication of the enthusiasm and seriousness of the employees of the Ministry of Economy, the commercial sectors and the private sector in working to restore economic activity in Libya and establish a promising investment future, adding that the ongoing maintenance, development, renovation and expansion of the Tripoli fairgrounds was an opportunity for the public and private sectors to continue their internal and external activities to invite foreign investors and companies to discuss opportunities for cooperation in Libya.
Tripoli International Fair was launched in Tripoli on Saturday evening with local and international participation. According to the Committee of the General Authority for Exhibitions, the fair would see, in addition to the local participation of economic, productive and commercial institutions, a wide Arab and international participation from well-known industrial institutions.
