The Italian news agency NOVA said that the wastewater treatment agreement signed between Italy and Libya during the visit of Libyan Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbiebah will be implemented by an Italian company. The project is worth 200 million euros and the company will resume establishing the wastewater treatment plants in Tripoli and Misrata, which were permanently suspended in 2014 due to unrest in Libya. 

NOVA added that the work at the plants is expected to be completed by 2026, pointing out that the Italian Housing and Infrastructure Council and the Libyan Corporation for Urban Development funded this project, and that the agreement is important in strengthening cooperation with a strategic country for Italy.

Dbiebah signed several memoranda of understanding with the Italian Prime Minister in Rome during his visit last Wednesday in the fields of oil, gas and joint investment, including activating the contracts for the wastewater treatment plants.
