Benghazi, 15 November 2015:
As he reopened the Benghazi office of the Central Bank of Libya, governor Ali Hebri also . . .[restrict]called on staff who had fled the city to return to work.
This January, the original CBL branch, already damaged, was completely wrecked in fighting that drove out militants. Its operations were moved to Beida.
Benghazi’s mayor Omar Barasi said that having the bank back up and running would be a major boost for the city’s economic life.
Hebri said that his staff were preparing international invitations to tender for custom-built Benghazi premises. Earlier this year he outlined a scheme to decentralise the CBL by creating main branches in Sebha and Benghazi as well as Tripoli. [/restrict]
