House of Lords
Palace of Westminster


This week we held our annual reception for Libyan British Business Council members at the House of Lords, London.

The event, which was hosted by LBBC President, the Rt. Hon. the Lord Trefgarne PC, was a great success. It was a pleasure to see so many familiar faces there.

Eminent guests included:

– The Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Libya Yvonne Fovargue MP,
– The Libyan Ambassador to the UK HE Salah Mrehil, and
– Rt Hon. David Jones MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Libya. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the LBBC Sponsors – BACB plcBank ABC and Libya Holdings Group – for their ongoing and much appreciated support of the Council and our activities.

Also we would like to thank all those from the LBBC Board, LBBC Members and friends of the Council who attended this week’s event.

We look forward to continuing our work with our members, partners and colleagues in both Libya and the UK, to promote the bilateral trade relationship.
