Tripoli, 6 March 2014:
Several days of seminars held by UNESCO, the European Broadcasting Union and the Ministry of . . .[restrict]Information to prepare Libya for a switchover from analogue to digital broadcasting conclude today.
The events held at the Waddan Hotel in Tripoli saw officials from the Ministries of Communication, Economy and Culture discuss with international experts a plan to ensure a digital switchover across the country by June 2015.

Experts from the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), RaiWay, the African Telecommunications Union and the Arab States Broadcasting Union, among others were present at the talks.
