Labour wants simpler Libyan visa framework
A Labour government would work on four priority areas to foster better relations with Libya, Labour leader Joseph Muscat said this morning.
He was addressing an audience of Maltese, Libyan and foreign businessmen at the New Libya Forum, a two-day conference that started yesterday.
Dr Muscat said a Labour government would simplify the issuing of visas for Libyans wanting to travel to Malta, to send the message that Libyans were welcome in Malta.
Other priorities include: setting up a financial vehicle that would enable resreach between the University of Malta and Libyan institutes in areas such as renewable energy, provide assistance to help Libya build its human resources capacity in education and healthcare and set up a proper business centre in Tripoli offering services and resources for Maltese wanting to do business in Libya.
The conference is organised by Maltese consultancy firm EMCS and audit firm Deloitte. It will end today.
