Reception for World of Concrete Delegation from Libya
January 11, 2023
- This is 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.
Guest speakers included Pedro G. Campo-Boué, U.S. Embassy Economic and Commercial Officer; Keith Kirkham, Regional Senior Commercial Officer, U.S. Department of Commerce; and Guevera Yao, Executive Director, U.S.-Africa Business Center, U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
AmCham expects that this event will serve as an important benchmark, and that we will be able to continue repeating similar missions for different sectors.
