Egypt to chair two UN meetings on future of Libyan economy

CAIRO – Egypt, in partnership with the EU and the US, will chair two meetings on Monday and Tuesday to discuss the Libyan economy’s future.

UN spokesperson Alessandra Filuchi explained that the acting UN envoy to Libya Stephanie Williams will host an Economic Working Group meeting on Libya on Monday and Tuesday in Geneva to discuss economic policy reforms via talks that will include representatives of major Libyan institutions.

These talks will discuss Libya’s economic track, which had previously seen an agreement to form three committees: a Banking Committee to confront division in the banking system, a Public Revenue Distribution Committee and Public Fund Management, and a Reconstruction and Development Committee.
