The Foreign Minister for Libya's Interim Government, Dr. Abdul Hadi Al-Huwaij, called for giving the priority to Egyptian companies and labor to rebuild Libya in the liberated areas, for which "billions have been allocated."
"It is shameful that Egyptian workers are not at the forefront of the labor that comes to Libya to rebuild it," Al-Huwaij said at a symposium organized by the Egyptian Workers Union.
Al-Huwaij expressed his hope to increase Egyptian labor and entry into Libya by legal means. “Libyans live in safety, they practice their daily life normally and any security breaches occur anywhere in the world and not only in Libya.”
He also demanded that the organization of labor be through the Federation of Egyptian workers; so as to avoid the illegal entry of labor through Sudan, Tunisia and the sea, and so that these workers do not fall prey to terrorist organizations and human trafficking groups.
Al-Huwaij is currently in Egypt, where he met yesterday with the Egyptian President's Assistant for National Projects, Ibrahim Mahlab, and discussed with him the possibility of providing assistance for the reconstruction of Libya.
