The head of the Turkish-Libyan Business Council, Murtaza Karanfil, has announced the opening of a new maritime route between Turkey and Libya, other than the strategic station project in Misrata.
Karanfil revealed in media statements that the first trip to the port of Misrata has already set off, while other commercial trips will be organized through this line to increase the volume of bilateral trade with Libya.
The maritime line with Libya is currently operating with two ships, but there are plans to expand the fleet to 10 vessels by 2023, according to Karanfil.
He emphasized that the new shipping line will expand economic relations for the Turkish investor in Libya in particular and Africa in general.
"The Turkish Business Council and Investors will continue to contribute to the Libyan economy and intensify their activities to develop diplomatic and commercial relations."
Karanfil further indicated that the Turkish private sector is enthusiastic to complete the unfinished projects in Libya, as well as participating in new projects.
