From Libya, all state representatives agreed to recognize their delay in the development of renewable energies, due to the conflict endured in the last 10 years, they also all agreed to recognize the need to train both a superior technical team and professionals for placement and maintenance of future facilities.
It has been a step forward in linking both countries, within the framework of activation of institutional, commercial and cultural relations, which the Hispanic-Libyan Chamber of Commerce has been carrying out since last year.
It is worth highlighting all the measures, which were detailed from the government, regarding the new legislation, investment support and facilities for foreign companies to access the development of projects and investment, the government committing to the purchase of energy and tax facilities for your promotion.
