Tripoli, 4 January 2014:
The Ministry of Planning met with the “2030 Vision Committee” last Monday 30 December in order to . . .[restrict]discuss the ideas and visions for the future development of Libya.
At the meeting, the “2030 Vision” Committee head Issa Twueger, said that the Committee was working seriously on transforming the Libyan economy from a shadow economy to an active and productive economy based on international knowhow.
Twueger added that the Committee had put in place a roadmap to implement the initiative in 2014-2015 in order to create development strategies in the health, security, administrative reform and planning.
The “2030 Vision” Committee is part of the executive branch, the government, however, the National Planning Council, part of the legislative arm, the GNC, is also working on a “2040 vision”.
The “2030 Vision” Committee had had its inaugural meeting back in May last year. The GNC’s National Planning Council, for its turn, had held a conference on 8 December presenting its “2040 Vision”.
The “2030 Vision Committee” has so far had no public interaction, or made any public disclosure of its so-called visions for the Libyan public, preferring to work behind the scenes. [/restrict]
