The Libyan British Business Council (LBBC) is currently bringing a trade delegation to Tripoli.
Led by LBBC Chairman the Rt Hon the Lord Trefgarne (pictured), the delegation includes 19 companies in the fields of aeronautics, investment, banking, real estate, legal, project management, engineering, architecture, design, accountancy, oil and gas, media, and logistics.
The organisation's website says:
"With democratic representatives elected, ministerial posts appointed, budgets assigned and priorities established, the new Libyan authorities will be looking to allocate contracts for the myriad projects and programmes that the country is embarking upon during this crucial period.
"Delegates will meet and discuss these contracts and related trade and investment issues with some of the country’s most influential business and political figures and will enjoy high-level networking opportunities and one-to-one briefings with Libyan public and private sector representatives.
This will be the first and most important occasion for Libya’s UK partners to promote their products, services, expertise and capabilities to the country’s new leadership and to the increasingly influential private sector companies and business leaders that also have an integral role to play in the process of national reconstruction that Libya is now embracing."
The programme, running from 13th to 16th January, includes meetings with representatives of the Central Bank of Libya, the Libyan Investment Authority, the National Oil Corporation (NOC), and others.
