AmCham-sponsored delegation to World of Concrete conference in Las Vegas, NV
January 17, 2023 - January 19, 2023
The U.S. Department of Commerce and AmCham Libya organized a delegation of members from the Tripoli Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TCCI) to attend the World of Concrete conference in Las Vegas, NV from January 17-19, 2023.
It was a U.S. Commercial Service delegation which included benefits such as assistance arranging and scheduling appointments with U.S. exhibitors and a reception for delegates to meet up with U.S. companies who are interested in exporting to Libya.
This event was significant for the following reasons:
- This was the first time that there has been a U.S. Commercial Service delegation from Libya.
- This type of event would not have been possible in recent years because of the strict visa policies with respect to Libyans. This mission is coming at a time when the U.S. Embassy is working diligently to facilitate U.S. visas for Libyans.
- Events such as this one create a high likelihood for increased bilateral trade.
