London, 29 January 2021:
At an event held Wednesday at Tripoli’s Radisson Blue Mahari hotel, Libya Post, launched the first phase of Libya’s post/zip code system.
Libya Post is one of the main state-owned telecoms and post subsidiaries charged with postal services.
There have been over the decades numerous attempts starting from the time of the Qaddafi regime, to implement Libya’s postcode system.
In February 2019, in a cooperation agreement, Libya’s General Authority for Telecommunications and Informatics granted permission to Libya Post to begin the completion of Libya’s Postcode address project.
The agreement included building applications for the project’s database management, establishing a public business platform to access the postal code interconnection, web applications, mobile applications and other required services.
It will be recalled that Libya’s postcode system was commenced during the Qaddafi regime which had announced in the early 2000’s that the system was completed. Indeed, green postcode plates began to be attached to many buildings in Tripoli at the time.
Today, they have been replaced by blue postcode plates.
