The Franco-Libyan Transport Forum will be held from 11 to 12 December at MEDEF’s Paris headquarters.
MEDEF, the Mouvement des entreprises de France, or the Movement of the Enterprises of France, is the largest employer federation in France, established in 1998.
Explaining the rationale behind the event, MEDEF says connecting territories together, organizing themselves into “platforms” located on strategic nodes of dense networks, increasingly segmented and complex, logistics and transport infrastructures are at the heart of the challenges of development and diversification of the Libyan economy.
It says the forum is an opportunity to:
- Take stock of Libyan needs in the transport sector in the broad sense and take note of current and future projects.
- Better understand the expectations of the Libyan authorities vis-à-vis French companies in the transport sector/transport infrastructure.
- Promote the expertise and comparative advantages of the French offer.
- Better understand the business environment and the operating methods of French companies in Libya.
Specifically, the organisers say the forum will discuss:
- Air Transport and Civil Aviation Industry
- Air Transport Operators
- Public Transportation
- Passenger services and ground handling
- Maintenance and spare parts
- Safety and Security
- Firefighting and rescue
- Maritime transport and ports
- Technical support and port services
- Roads and bridges
- Railways and surface metro
- Engineering and consulting offices
- Construction and contracting companies
- Protecting the environment and regulating Carbon emissions
- Training and Human Resources Development
- Logistics services and Technical support
- Financial and Investment Associations
The event is co-organised by MEDEF International in France and the General Union of Chamber of Commerce of Libya.
