Tunisian-Libyan Business Council Recommends Holding of Conference On Investment (

The Tunisian-Libyan business council called on the Tunisian government to shortly hold in a southern Tunisian city a conference on investment that will bring together Tunisian and Libyan businessmen.

The recommendation was presented Thursday by the council headed by its President Abdelhafidh Essakroufi from Tunisia and its Vice-President Foued Al Awem from Libya at their meeting with Minister of Investment and International Co-operation Yassine Brahim.

The meeting was an opportunity for the council, which brings together a large number of investors from both countries, to express their commitment to increase the Libyan investments in Tunisia, particularly in the southern regions, according to a press release from the Ministry.

The council members also emphasised the need to ease project creation procedures and provide information on the legislative and regulatory framework.

Brahim said the five-year plan will focus on boosting investment and partnership with Libya and Algeria. This component will be a strategic choice to strengthen the economic relations, he also pointed out.

The minister also reviewed the outlines of the investment code, reiterating the willingness of his department to provide support to developers wishing to creation investment projects.
