The delegation of eight UK-based companies led by British Water – the trade association for UK companies specialising in areas of the water industry – arrived in Libya on Saturday for a three-day trade mission.
Lila Thompson, international director for British Water, told the Libya Herald:
“I’m very much looking forward to learning about the plans to upgrade Libya’s water and waste infrastructure and the challenges that need to be addressed.
“The companies ... are keen to work with Libyan partners to help address these and build sustainable infrastructure.”
British Water has described the visit, sponsored by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), as timely, with “improved management of water resources and wastewater treatment high on Libya’s development agenda.”
