Libyan Minister of Economy, Mohamed Al-Hwaij has called for regular reports on the activities of the Libyan-Egyptian Joint Chamber of Commerce.
During his meeting with the Deputy President of the General Union of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture, as well as the President and members of the management committee of the Libyan-Egyptian Joint Chamber of Commerce on the Libyan side, Al-Hwaij requested reports detailing the services provided to active business owners from both countries, and the progress of trade activities.
The Minister was briefed on the chamber’s activities, and the status of bilateral trade. The President and members of the chamber discussed the challenges and obstacles faced by business owners in the movement of goods and services, through the border crossing.
They also discussed mechanisms for addressing these challenges in coordination with the Customs Authority. As well as working to streamline the entry procedures for specialized labour into the Libyan market, in collaboration with relevant authorities.
Notably, the Speaker of the Libyan Parliament, Ageela Saleh called on the United Nations to mobilize international support for the formation of a unified government. This would be tasked with conducting Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
In his letter to UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, Saleh reaffirmed the Parliament’s commitment to holding elections. “This commitment is reflected in the unanimous approval of the laws governing the Presidential and Parliamentary elections, which were developed by the 6+6 Joint Committee, and are based on the 13th constitutional amendment,” he said.
He also highlighted the consensus reached between the Parliament and the High Council of State (HCS).
Saleh emphasised the importance of establishing a unified government, with the primary responsibility of organizing elections.
