The Reconstruction and Stabilization Committee of Benghazi announced Tuesday that it had begun restoration work on the Stock Market project at its official headquarters in the city of Benghazi after years of neglect.
The Committee explained that it had developed an 8-month plan in 4 phases, starting with maintenance while preserving the building’s architectural identity, creating investment annexes for the building, renovation work, interior and exterior painting, bathrooms, and the necessary divisions for halls and offices.
The work phases also include installing lighting, external green surfaces, investment offices, and several electromechanical works include preparing emergency systems, connecting networks to offices and halls, a surveillance camera system and central air conditioning, supplying and installing a power station for the Stock Market, and supplying and installing the necessary furniture and equipment.
This Committee said the steps come from the belief of its Chairman, Hatem Al-Araibi, in the necessity of equipping the headquarters to suit financial trading and form the heart of the national economy in the future as the new economic capital of Libya. This, it continued, required hard work to restore the lustre of the building after it was subjected to comprehensive destruction in years past.
