On Tuesday, officials from the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNU) held talks with Alberini to discuss the implementation of the 2008 Friendship and Partnership Treaty.
During the meeting, the officials provided a visual presentation analyzing the treaty’s clauses, to ensure their execution with direct support from the Italian Embassy in Libya.
They showcased a part of the review, and analysis of the current status of the treaty’s clauses, although the Libyan government did not specify the nature of the clauses under review.
The meeting also addressed ongoing negotiations to monitor the implementation of the Amsaad-Ras Ajdir road project with Italian companies. This commences with the first sections of Amsaad-Al Marj, and the fourth section Misrata-Ras Ajdir.
In 2008, Libya signed a Friendship and Partnership Treaty with Italy, encompassing the maintenance of the Coastal Road across Libya. The treaty also included Italy’s commitment to completing housing projects, and offering scholarships to Libyan students in Italian universities. As well as encouraging Italian companies to enter the Libyan market.
