The Libyan capital, Tripoli, is expected to host the "Made in Algeria" exhibition at the end of next week; an event for which Algeria paved the way for by reopening its land border with Libya for commercial purposes.
The exhibition, which is hosted for first time in Tripoli, aims to promote Algeria-made products and will be organized from May 28 to May 31. It is supported by the Ministry of Economy and Trade of the Government of National Unity, the General Union of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the Investment and Privatization Authority and the Tripoli Chamber of Commerce.
The organizers of the exhibition say that it will bring together the most important Algerian companies in one place in Libya, while saving Libyan companies the trouble of moving to Algeria and searching for partnerships.
Likewise, Algerian officials believe that Libyan companies looking for an effective partnership with their Algerian counterparts can use this exhibition as a way to communicate with the most important institutions, saying this exhibition is part of the broader efforts of Algeria and Libya to open markets in sub-Saharan Africa, and act as economic and commercial gateway to the rest of the continent.
Meanwhile, Algeria paved the way for the exhibition by announcing the opening of its border crossings with Libya and Tunisia for commercial purposes only, amid expectations that the volume of trade exchanges would rise to three billion dollars after the opening of the Dabbab Ghadames crossing, compared to the current rate of 65 million dollars, 59 million dollars of which are Algerian exports to Libya.
