Among the areas earmarked for development are:

  • A programme by the General Electric Company of Libya (GECOL) to increase capacity from  about 13,000 MW in 2012 to 19,000-20,000 MW by 2020;
  • A $2.5-billion upgrade of the state’s busiest airports, which aims to expand capacity to about 28 million passengers a year from an estimated 5 million;
  • The provision of 200,000 new homes, with supporting infrastructure, in the next seven years. The government estimates that the country will face a housing shortfall of 500,000 units by 2020.
