Tripoli, March 30: A Maltese business delegation is to visit Libya between April 16 and 19. Organised by Malta Enterprise (ME), . . .[restrict]it will focus on port management and maritime services. It will be led by Malta’s finance and fair competition ministers. It is the first such visit since the revolution.
Companies participating are involved in ship repair, marine engineering, construction and technical services, port management, yacht marina development and management and maritime services as well as fish processing and farming.
According to ME executive chairman Alan Camilleri, there had been a massive response by Maltese companies wanting to join in business delegations to Libya. Over 450 companies had approached it he said.
ME has already visited Libya to establish relationships with the new Libya.
“The partnership agreement Malta Enterprise has signed with the General Board for Ownership and Investment within the Libyan Ministry for Economy paves the way for our initiatives,” said Camilleri.
ME has signed the agreement with Libyan Economy Ministry’s General Board for Ownership and Investment during a preparatory visit to Misurata and Tripoli earlier this month. During the visit, Malta Enterprise met with ministries as well as public and private organisations.
A collaboration agreement between ME and Libya’s Federation of Chambers of Commerce is expected to be signed soon.
