Tripoli, 19 April:
The Libyan British Business Council (LBBC) concluded a successful visit to Libya from 15 to 19 April, which included . . .[restrict]both Tripoli and Misrata.
The multi-sector business delegation included 17 companies in engineering, marketing, legal, construction, health, consultancy and the like.
Delegation leader, Lord Trefgarne, contrasting the old Libya with the new, said “we look forward to doing business in the new Libya on a level playing field where UK firms can compete successfully on the basis of the acknowledged quality and value for money of their goods and services without the arbitrary, unpredictable and self-serving distortions which characterized the previous regime”.
Addressing Libya’s specific needs and characteristics, he said “we look forward to working with our Libyan partners to help grow Libya’s economy and prosperity through trade, investment and the transfer of knowledge and skills to the young Libyans involved”.
