Libyan Ministry of Labor of the Government of National Accord (GNA) said it would ease procedures of recruitment of workers from the Philippines and complete measures of contracting the Filipinos who had already come to Libya.

The Ministry of Labor said it had agreed with the embassy of the Philippines to recruit Filipino workers to fill the gaps left by the lack of manpower in Libya, especially in medical jobs.

The Ministry of Labor also said that the agreement says Libya has to first fix the problems of the Filipino workers who are already in Libya in terms of providing them with residence permits and other important contracting privileges.

According to the official of recruitment at the Ministry of Labor, Libya is suffering from a lack of workers at technical jobs as Libyans choose not to work in certain jobs.
