Libya’s UN-backed Prime Minister Fayez Serraj on Sunday held talks with a high-level Maghreb delegation to discuss joint cooperation and opportunities.

The information office of the prime minister said in a statement that Serraj met in Tripoli with the delegation of economic chambers of the Arab Maghreb Union, and stressed the importance of activating the institutions of the union.

“The Maghreb countries have great opportunities in the Libyan market, as well as the quality of their products. They are easy to reach, considering that time is an important factor in trade,” Serraj said.

The Maghreb delegation stressed importance of cooperation with Libya, as well as convening joint high committees to develop an ideal framework for joint cooperation, the statement said.

The delegation also announced that preparations are underway to hold a forum of Maghreb businessmen early next year in Tripoli.

The Maghreb delegation is holding a two-day working visit to Libya to discuss opportunities for cooperation between the five countries of the Arab Maghreb Union, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Mauritania.
