The President of the INTERNATIONAL Investment and Business Confederation (ULUSKON) and the Goodwill Ambassador of the International Human Rights Defense Committee (IHRDC) Nezaket Emine Atasoy visited the Ambassador of the Republic of Libya to Ankara, Mustafa E. M. Elgelaib. President Atasoy stated that cooperation shall be initiated with the Republic of Libya on imports, exports and investments.
Within the scope of the visit, President Atasoy held a meeting with the newly appointed Mustafa E. M. Elgelaib , Ambassador of the Republic of Libya to Turkey, Counselor Entesar Eraiss and Labor Attaché Ala Omran Dhiem. During the meeting, a road map was drawn for investments that can be made in common areas in the post-pandemic period.
“WE WILL NEED INVESTORS”
Ambassador Elgelaib expressed his pleasure to see President Atasoy at the embassy. Ambassador Elgelaib said, “Our relations with Turkey go back 500 years. From now on, we will continue to support our Turkish brothers in economic, social and political fields. As ambassadors, our priority is to strengthen the relations between the two countries. So we are happy to see Madam Atasoy here today. For some time now, the Libyan business field has been an area that the Turkish business world was hesitant to approach due to the long-standing internal unease in the country. Recently, trade has been reviving with the cooling of events in Libya. We will need many investors in the coming period. There are many investment requests from various countries, but Turkish companies will be given priority. All kinds of opportunities and support will be provided to the Turkish business people that ULUSKON directs to Libya.”
“Advantageous for Trade”
Noting that they will cooperate with the Libyan State in the fields of oil, natural gas, aviation, agriculture, tourism, energy and technology, President Atasoy said,
“I saw in my last visit to Libya that the country has countless natural resources and is an advantageous place for international trade due to its location. The fact that the internal conflicts have also improved will accelerate trade even more. Likewise, we shall encourage and direct business people from Libya as ULUSKON. The way of our country’s economic development is to increase investments and exports. This is our primary intention,”
At the end of the meeting, it an “Economic Cooperation Conference” between the parties was reviewed. These upcoming commercial events are aimed to initiate exciting possibilities to the Turkish and Libyan business world.
