The Municipality of Central Tripoli has submitted a proposal to the Presidential Council (PC) to allocate 500 dinars per month, as a minimum, for small business owners, to help stave off the economic effects of coronavirus.

It explained that this intends to help business owners hurt by the coronavirus epidemic to overcome the difficult circumstances resulting from the curfew.

According to the municipality, around 3,000 businesses have been forced to close their doors because of the epidemic outbreak, according to the licenses registered within the municipality.

It indicated that this aid project will require around half a million Libyan dinars per month.
