Tripoli, 2 April 2014:
“The Netherlands has knowledge, know-how and products that are essential in rebuilding Libya”, said Antonius Lansink . . .[restrict]the Netherlands ambassador, of his country’s participation in the 42 Tripoli International Fair, which opened officially today.
Ambassador Lansink highlighted the information about the Dutch education system that will be available to visitors at the Dutch stand, saying that “it is of the utmost importance to invest in education. Libya sends many students abroad to further their university education. Libyan students are mostly unaware that Dutch universities are teaching in English and are rated among the best in the world”.
The Dutch embassy is launching an awareness campaign to promote studying in the Netherlands.
Beyond education, the Dutch stand at the Tripoli International Fair will include companies such as Philips (medical and lighting), Damen (shipyards), Royal Haskoning (engineering), and BAM (construction and maintenance). Frico Cheese and Fayruz drinks will also be present at the fair.
Ambassador Lansink added that Dutch “presence at the trade fair shows our continued commitment and interest to invest in Libya”.
The 42nd Tripoli International Fair to be held at their historic site at Tripoli International Fairgrounds in central Tripoli will open to the general public from tomorrow until 12 April.
