The Libyan tourism minister said her country sought to attract Turkish investors as the two countries agreed to cooperate on tourism.
Libyan Minister of Tourism Akram Abd al-Salam Bash Imam said her country was engaged in cooperation with Turkey on tourism, as Libya planned to pass laws for promoting its touristic value and incentivizing foreign investment.
Large-scale tourism projects in Tripoli and Sibrata are being finalized despite security woes, said Imam, while some 20 projects worth billions of dollars still remain from the Kaddafi era.
Imam said the media was growing more and more obsessed with Libya’s security issues.”This hinders our efforts to attract tourists into the country,” she added.
