European traders have told the Reuters that the government grain-purchasing agency in Benghazi has invited tenders for the supply of 50,000 tons of wheat flour.
The tenders must be submitted by Monday. The invitation is believed to have come from the Matahan agency which operates out of both Benghazi and Tripoli, and is responsible for most of the country’s grain purchases.
Libya typically has to pay a premium to import such commodities, due to claims of delayed settlements and the continuing political instability.
