On 26th January 2017, the Libya Reconstruction and Investment Forum – hosted by the Middle East Association (MEA) and Developing Markets Associates (DMA) on behalf of The Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) –took place in London.
The Forum was the first major international event to focus on the immense potential, and urgent need, for reconstruction and investment in Libya since the formation of the GNA. It covered a range of potential opportunities in Libya, with a particular focus on infrastructure, energy, healthcare and the financial sector. Bringing together UK and international investors and businesses, as well as senior government representatives from both countries, the forum also covered pressing issues around rebuilding Libya’s civil society and welfare systems.
The Forum matched international investors and businesses with opportunities in Libya and discussed potential co-investment opportunities with the private sector and the GNA on key infrastructure and business projects. Plenary sessions, outlining Libya’s reconstruction and investment priorities, were complimented by a series of breakout sessions on key sectors and on efforts to strengthen governance, enhance security and revitalise civil society as critical components of Libya’s reconstruction agenda.

DMA would also like to thank all those who supported the forum and helped make it such a success.
