Simplifying the business creation process is essential for the development and growth of the private sector. Following the completion of the first phase of the Ejraat Platform, which lists the required regulations for all administrative procedures in Libya, the implementation of the second phase has started. The goal is to simplify and reduce those procedures to facilitate the work of business owners in Libya.
In this context, a two-day workshop was held in Tunis, bringing together the Libyan parties concerned with the business creation and other commercial procedures to exchange views with their Tunisian counterpart. Discussions took place on concrete ways to implement simplification and reforms related to business registration and other commercial regulations in Libya.
During the workshop, a field visit to the Agency for Promotion, Industry and Innovation was conducted to share the Tunisian experience in establishing the Single Window and lay the foundation stone for creating a road map to simplify establishing and registering businesses in Libya.
Among the workshop attendees were Dr Nuri Ali, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Economy and Trade for Free Zones Affairs and Mr Antonis Tsamoulis, Director of the Economics, Private Sector and Trade Development Program at the European Union Delegation to Libya.
This workshop comes within the activities of the EU4PSL project funded by the European Union and implemented by Expertise France to support the private sector in Libya and create a thriving business environment for SMEs and enterprises.
