CAIRO – 23 May 2021: The Egyptian Businessmen Association (EBA) formed a committee to prepare a list of companies that want to take part in reconstruction opportunities in Libya as the association plans to send a delegation to the neighboring country soon to coordinate partnerships.


Member of the EBA's Constructions and Building Committee Walid al-Sewedy told Youm7 that the association is backing the state's orientation to participate in the reconstruction of regional countries.


The businessman noted that Egyptian companies operating in constructions, building material, and engineering consulting have accumulated notable experience over the past years as a result of carrying out mega national projects across the country such as building new cities, housing projects of various categories, and roads.

Madbouly also noted that one of the signed MoUs was related to the return of Egyptian workers to Libya to ‘contribute along with Libyans in reconstructing and developing the country.’


Madbouly stressed during the conference that Egypt supports all measures and steps being taken by the Libyan government to achieve stability for the Libyan people.


He underlined that the signing of cooperation MoUs between Egypt and Libya in health, electricity, manpower and industry fields reflects the strong ties binding the two countries.


During the talks, the two sides agreed on implementing a number of major projects in the electricity, energy, communications and information technology and infrastructure domains.
