Minister of Economy reviews in Malta upgrading Libyan ports’ services

Libya’s Minister of Economy and Trade Mohammed Al-Huweij made a field visit to the Malta Free Port and the industrial zone in Malta. The visit included discussions about developing the services of some Libyan ports.

On Friday, during his meeting with the Maltese Ministers of Foreign Affairs, European Affairs, Trade and Economy, Al-Huweij sent an official invitation to Maltese companies to participate in the Tripoli International Fair in its 50th edition, scheduled to be held in May.

The Ministry of Economy and Trade said in a statement that the free port was considered a major center for maritime shipping and storage in the Mediterranean.

It said that the Minister’s visit came within the framework of developing bilateral relations with Malta to raise the volume of trade exchange and joint cooperation as well as to encourage economic development.

The two sides also discussed the need to develop services that include a number of Libyan ports: Misrata, Al-Khoms and Benghazi; to accommodate commercial business, facilitate shipping movement, and open a direct sea line – “in light of Libya’s strategic geographic location that makes it the gateway to Africa,” The Ministry said.
