The ambassador of Korean Republic to Libya, Lee Sang-soo, agreed with the Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Libya, Marc-Andre French, to increase his country's contribution to supporting local peacebuilding by $ 400,000, bringing the support provided by Korea to the programme to $ 6.599 million.

UNDP is working to strengthen the Libyan Korean Center in Tripoli under the supervision of the Ministry of Labour and Rehabilitation to become a unique center for advanced vocational training for professions that support reconstruction and economic resilience, UNDP said in a press release.

Through this new contribution, UNDP aims to transform the Libyan-Korea Center into a technical innovation hub focusing on environment friendly business opportunities.

The Korean ambassador to Libya affirmed his country's commitment and continuous support to Libya in its efforts to restore peace and stability, expressing his happiness to continue the support, which he hopes will contribute to Libya's recovery, rehabilitation and capacity building.
