FIMBank Group Chairman Dr John C. Grech has been invited to chair the Libya Trade & Infrastructure Finance Conference that will take place in Istanbul, Turkey on February 6, 2014. The conference is organized by the UK based event and publishing house Exporta and will present a cutting edge assessment of the rewards and risks posed by this newly liberalised economy. It will also highlight the overhaul of Libya’s public institutions and private sector and discuss the extensive opportunities offered by this key North African market’s potential as a hub for regional trade.
Commenting on the significance of this prestigious event, Dr Grech stated that “Libya’s successful transition and sustainable development hinges on the evolving security situation and the new government’s economic strategy. This conference will focus on these key developments, and the progress being achieved. It will also provide a unique insight by policy makers as well as senior Libyan public and private sector business leaders”.
With regard to FIMBank’s activity in this country, Dr Grech confirmed that “FIMBank has an excellent reputation as well as an established record in supporting business in Libya. By means of the important exposure we will be getting at this international conference, we intend to send the message that we plan to continue fulfilling our role as a facilitator between emerging and developed markets. FIMBank remains committed to increasing access to trade finance products in order to support development in the region.”
