Meeting people and building the relationships which lead to trade and investment opportunities is a vital part of all business development, but perhaps nowhere more so than in Libya.
Libyans will do business with people they know and trust. Those who are new to the market or unknown to the Libyan decision maker will start behind their more well-established competitors.
The LBBC’s key role is to help our members initiate and develop high-value relationships with the individuals and organisations they need to know in order to win business in Libya.
The LBBC is unique among British trade associations and business consultancies in its experience, expertise and in-country contacts. It is well served by a Board of Directors with extensive experience of doing business in Libya and with Libyans. Uniquely, it has also maintained its commitment to Libya and to the maintenance and development of its networks throughout the difficult times experienced over recent years.
Membership of the LBBC offers active participation in our programme of events, contact with our network of corporate and political associates, and access to the Council’s collective expertise. The LBBC continues to keep abreast of developments in Libya, to maintain its contacts there, and to support its members through an active programme of events and services.
The LBBC hosts a programme of regular and annual events, comprising:
- The LBBC Monthly Webinars for members to hear from Libyan and British officials, business leaders and other authoritative speakers, such as political and diplomatic experts. Click here to see recordings of the LBBC Webinars and Briefings
- Periodic sector-specific events involving Libyan visitors to the UK
- The LBBC Receptions at the House of Lords with distinguished UK and Libyan guest speakers
- The LBBC Trade Mission to Tunis (pending a return to Tripoli and Benghazi), chosen because it is the easiest destination for Libyans (who require no visa) to come and meet our delegates. Click here to see details of our last Trade Mission
The LBBC can also provide advice, information and introductions for members, particularly those new to Libya.
