Yesterday, October 8th, a meeting of several Libyan and Tunisian officials was organized by the Tunisian Union for Industry, Commerce, and Handicraft (UTICA) to discuss how bilateral economic relations could help Libya’s reconstruction.

Mohamed Abdelkarim El Raaidh, member of the Executive Board of the Libyan Union of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, called upon the Tunisian government to ease the procedures of Tunisian workers moving to Libya. He also stated that Libya will prioritize Tunisian workforce in the country’s reconstruction. El Raaidh stressed that Libya has discarded illegal workforce and that Tunisian workers are invited to come to Libya as soon as possible.

On another note, Mr. Samir El Mehdi, Libyan Representative at the Tunisian-Libyan Economic Chamber, asserted that Libya aims to improve its economic cooperation with Tunisia. He said that Tunisia is Libya’s brother and friend, praising the hospitality of southern Tunisians who welcomed about 4,500 Libyan families in the wake of civil war without expecting anything in return.

Mr. Said Aidi, Minister of Professional Training and Employment, stated that the creation of a common economic space between Tunisia and Libya is imperative. He stressed that Tunisia’s 700,000 unemployed are an opportunities for Libya and its reconstruction. The minister also pointed at the possibility of establishing a union between the two countries in the far future.
