With the Libyan elections due in June, after which contract awards and invitations to tender are likely to multiply, the time for British companies to enter the market is now. It is widely expected that there will be significant business opportunities in the second half of the year and anyone who wants to work in Libya should be actively preparing the ground now. Once the newly elected Government comes to office, bidding companies may well be expected to deliver solutions at a rapid rate.
With a narrowing window of opportunity, we are writing to invite you to attend a conference on Winning Business in Libya - A Practical Guide for UK Companies which has been discounted for members of the LBBC. We commend this conference which will focus on advising British companies how they can best position themselves practically to win the contracts that will be tendered after the election. The LBBC's Director General, Robin Lamb, will be among the speakers.
The programme will offer a “what you need to know A-Z”. For example, it will include subjects such as:
• Finding and connecting with business partners in Libya
• Accessing trade finance for your export activity
• Key sectors and probable contracts within the sector
• Who do you need to know in order to position yourself for the tender process
• How will procurement work (and how will it be different from the Gaddafi era)
• Understanding the emerging business and political context
As part of the conference there will be an opportunity to hear from the Libyan Minister of Industry as well as from the representatives of Libyan businesses, particularly from these key sectors:
• Oil & Gas
• Transport Infrastructure
• Education & Training
Although there are great opportunities in Libya, it would be a mistake not to recognise that the political and security outlook for the country remains uncertain and that a number of factors will impact upon the Libyan business environment. These will be addressed by examining the current political environment and key considerations such as security and corruption risks.
