With the world bouncing back from the unprecedented COVID-19 health crisis, trending towards a greener recovery and calls from Libya’s youth for more inclusivity, the timing is ripe to work towards economic diversification in Libya. Since 2013, the OECD has been working on enhancing private sector development in Libya, including enhancing the legal framework for small and medium-sized enterprises. Under this new ambitious project launched in 2020, the EU and the OECD will support public-private dialogue in Libya through the creation of a dedicated platform, capacity-building and the provision of technical expertise to move towards this new economic vision.
Objectives of the Programme
Promoting Public-Private Dialogue in Libya is an EU-OECD Programme that supports and encourages an active economic and social dialogue between Libya’s public and private actors. Through public-private dialogue, the Programme will contribute to the adoption of the necessary economic transformation policies that can lead to post-conflict recovery and the diversification of Libya’s economy. The Programme will work towards its objectives by:
► Creating a platform which mobilises public-private discussions through physical encounters;
► Providing the government, private and social actors with the tools and expertise necessary to engage in a structured dialogue;
► Contributing to developing a new economic vision for the country, delivering analytical inputs and well-structured and specific policy reform plans.
