After the briefing the following questions were asked by participants during the Q&A part of the event.
- If Libya is split into two halves, do you think NOC will be split into divisions? Paul Denny, SKS Group
- How do you assess the prospects for re-opening the major oil export terminals? Is it possible to envisage a credible political pathway that would allow the terminals to re-open? Roger Nunn, Nunn Associates
- What are the prospects of the Central Bank in Tripoli being united with the CBL in Benghazi and uniting the economic structures in the west and east? Peter Millett, LBBC
- You mentioned investment in energy generation. Do you see Libya having a future as a major green electricity generator? Exporting to Europe? Private sector or Government funded? Jonathan Dart, Dart Consulting
- You speak about “inclusivity” at the start of your note. What are the stakes of this happening in your opinion with future talks and plans for a new government/way forward for Libya? Boshra El-Habti, Bank ABC
- Do you think folding DfID into the FCO will see the UK take some small initiatives in Libya in the coming years? Nigel Phillips, Midrex UK Ltd
