In September Welsh Government commissioned a report on trading opportunities with Libya. The report has indicated significant opportunities in most of the sectors, healthcare being one of the priority areas. We are consequently organising a seminar on “Doing Business with Libya”, which will be conducted by the report’s authors and attended by Mr Hesham Ghrairi, Commercial Attaché at the Libyan Embassy.
