In a workshop held on the 24th of March 2022 in Tunis, the administrators of the Euromed Trade Helpdesk platform and the local focal points of the relevant Libyan institutions gathered with experts from Expertise France and ITC to discuss the ownership and management of the platform by Libyan stakeholders and develop the action plan for 2022.
User statistics of the platform were also presented during the workshop. In just a few months, the number of users in Libya exceeded 1,200 users, reflecting the eagerness of Libyan enterprises and business owners for trade and expansion opportunities in the region.
The Euromed Trade Helpdesk provides Libyan enterprises with free information on import and export requirements, applicable tariffs and trade statistics in Europe and the Mediterranean region. It also offers contact data for potential partners to encourage business development and growth.
Libya’s inclusion in the platform came within the activities of the EU4PSL project funded by the European Union and implemented by Expertise France in partnership with the International Trade Center (ITC).
