The US-Libya Business Association (USLBA) hosted US Special Envoy and Ambassador to Libya Richard Norland for a roundtable meeting in Washington, DC on April 21 to discuss current political and economic events impacting US-Libya ties, according to USLBA.
“Our members expressed concern about political uncertainty, mobilization of militias and oil and gas disruptions that cast a shadow over Libya’s business environment and damage the quality of life of the Libyan people. USLBA members also focused on Libya’s huge potential for economic growth,” USLBA tweeted on Friday.
US companies want to help develop and grow Libya’s rich energy resources as well as new opportunities in emerging sectors – including finance, telecommunications, and information technology – to spur broad economic development, reconstruction, and create jobs for the Libyan people, said USLBA.
USLBA reaffirmed its commitment to finding innovative solutions and improving Libyan access to US expertise to tackle Libya’s greatest challenges.
USLBA thanked the U.S. Embassy in Libya for strengthening the US-Libya biz ties that can help the Libyan people achieve their county’s potential.
