Libya plans to host exhibition on Algerian goods and products in Tripoli “during the coming period,” announced the Libyan Ministry of Economy on Sunday.
The announcement came following talks between Economy Minister Mohamed Al-Hawij and Algerian Trade Minister Kamal Rezik on the sidelines of a meeting of the Arab Ministers of Economy, Trade and Finance in Algeria.
Both ministers also agreed to “organize a joint meeting for business owners and investors in both countries”. However, the Libyan ministry did not specify a date or location for this meeting.
Al-Hawij and Rezik discussed a swift reopening of Debdeb border crossing to “revitalize and facilitate trade movement”. They also talked about “re-studying and evaluating trade and economic agreements, especially in light of global economic changes,” according to the Libyan ministry.
During the meeting, Al-Hawij “stressed the importance of activating the role of the private sector, establishing joint projects, and facilitating financial and technical procedures for traders and owners of companies in the two countries.”
