A Libyan delegation of 70 business leaders visited the Americas Food & Beverage Show in Miami from 18 to 20 September. AmCham Libya, which supported the visit, said the Libyan delegation was one of the largest foreign delegations at the event.
AmCham Libya said it was proud to be able to support bilateral trade opportunities and welcome Libyans to the U.S. Visiting delegations, including the Libyan Business Council (LBC), had the opportunity to meet with representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The Libyan Businessmen Council (LBC) sent a delegation of approximately 50 people to the Miami Show. The delegation was led by Tarek Elsmuai, Manager of the International Relations Department at the LBC.
