Head of the High Council of State (HCS), Khalid Al-Mishri, visited Washington on Monday and met with the US Commerce Chamber’s officials as well as academics and researchers from the Atlantic Council in Washington.
According to the HCS’s media office, Mishri will also meet with several US Congress members and other officials and will be addressing the Congress in a speech titled “Libya’s Future,” besides his speeches at the Atlantic Council and the National Interest Council.
During his meeting with the US Commerce Chamber, Mishri called for the return of American firms to work in Libya, and the resumption of US investment projects in the country.
The media office of the HCS said US Commerce officials reaffirmed their desire for investment in Libya, but voiced concern over security and political unrest in the country.
For his part, Mishri and his accompanying delegation assured the American side that the situation in Libya is heading towards stability, and stressed that the return of investments would also expedite the process.
The Government of National Accord and the Interim Government in Libya agreed a few days ago to jointly fund the $1.5 billion Sousse Port which will be implemented by a US-based company.
