CAIRO – 18 December 2021: Egypt’s Minister of Manpower Mohamed Saafan and his Libyan counterpart, Ali Abed, will launch in a press conference on Monday an electronic link system between the two countries to organize the entry of Egyptian workers to the Libyan labor market.

Earlier, Saafan announced that the Egyptian-Libyan technical committee signed in Tripoli the electronic link protocol between the two countries to facilitate the movement of manpower, according to what was agreed upon in the memorandum of understanding signed between the two ministers.

This comes in preparation for the return of Egyptian workers to Tripoli to participate in the reconstruction process.

Saafan stressed the importance of the electronic link system between the two countries to regulate the entry of Egyptian workers to the Libyan labor market in a legitimate manner according to legal procedures, and to determine the whereabouts of these workers.

In June, Abed affirmed his country’s readiness to receive Egyptian workers wishing to work in Libya.

He said the Egyptian Ministry of Manpower will publish the job announcements, after contacting the Libyan side, which determines the sectors that need to hire workers from Egypt.

The Libyan Minister’s statements came as part of his visit to Cairo.

He said that the Libyan National Unity Government is currently working to settle the conditions of Egyptian workers who entered Libyan illegally.

He further warned workers who wish to work in Libya to avoid dealing with brokerage offices so as not to be defrauded.

He pointed out that the workers who enter Libya illegally make them prey to criminal gangs, pointing out that the Government of National Unity wishes to regulate the entry of Egyptian workers legally through the Libyan Ministries of Labor and the Egyptian Manpower.

“The Libyan market is open and accommodates very large numbers of workers,” Minister Ali Al-Abed said adding that determining the size of the numbers of targeted workers depends on the return of direct air traffic from various Egyptian airports to Libya.

“The Egyptian worker is very welcome in Libya as he has the skills and experience that enables him to fulfill the work assigned to him,” Abed added.
