Sabha University held on Saturday the second international virtual conference entitled "The Effect of Coronavirus Pandemic on Economy and Politics" with the participation of specialists from Libya and other countries.
The Dean of Sabha University, Dr. Masoud Al-Raqiq says that the conference comes in light of the spread of the Covid-19 that has swept the world interrupting global economies and politics.
"Considering the whole world is at an utter stalemate, this conference is seeking to develop plans and strategies to minimize the impact of the pandemic on the economy and politics" Al-Raqiq explains.
The conference discussed around 38 scientific papers from several universities of Arab countries, including Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, the Sultanate of Oman, and Iraq, according to member of the conference scientific committee, Dr. Hamid Al-Hudhairi.
The entries covered several axes, such as the direct and indirect effects of the Coronavirus outbreak on the local and international economy and its impact on the oil and financial market, in addition to the e-banking role during the crisis.
Politically, the participants discussed the effects of the pandemic on the global system and the international relations in the post-Covid-19 era.
It is noteworthy that Sabha University organized last April its first virtual international conference which was dedicated to discussing e-learning during the Covid-19 crisis.
