The first Tunisian-Libyan sectoral forum in the field of building and public works – June 29, 2021

Under the supervision of the Ministry of Equipment, Housing and Infrastructures and the Libyan Ministry of Housing and Reconstruction, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Sfax, organized the “First Tunisian-Libyan Sector Forum” June 29, 2021, in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Tripoli and several Tunisian professional structures : the Order of Engineers, the Order of Architects and the National Federation of Building Contractors and Public Works (FNEBTP), of the UTICA, under the slogan « The Role of studies and Consulting Offices in the Success of Major Projects »

During the inauguration of this forum, the Tunisian Minister of Equipment, Housing and Infrastructures Kamal Doukh underlined the promotion of bilateral cooperation in the fields of planning, housing, construction and public works, with emphasis on Tunisian skills that are ready to provide their expertise to support the reconstruction projects in Libya. At the same time, the Minister reviewed some statistics relating to the actors of the building and public works sector in Tunisia, (6,500 construction and public works companies, 400 design offices and consulting engineers, 2,800 architects and 160 experts in land measurement and cadastre experts). All these skills are highly qualified, willing to bring their acquired expertise in the projects of reconstruction of Libya.

Experiences of Tunisian institutions specializing in building, construction and urban and environmental planning were presented, such as « the Real Estate Agency for Housing », « Urban Rehabilitation and Renovation Agency », the « Libyan Engineering Professions », and many Municipalities.

It was also suggested by a group of participants in the discussion session, the achievement of a twinning between the Tunisian and Libyan municipalities, which will serve as a starting point for the exchange of experiences, and a framework for the implementation of projects  to coordinate and develop data exchange, between professional engineering structures from the two countries.

The forum’s program included workshops and panel discussions on the theme of urban development, strategic planning, urban rehabilitation, the role of design offices and the implementation of suspended projects.

It also included a dialogue platform, which represented a space for discussion and interactive dialogue and a networking opportunity between the Tunisian and Libyan parties.

This meeting resulted in the conclusion of a memorandum of understanding, on June 30, 2021, between the Tunisian Order of Engineers and the General Union of Engineering Trades in Libya.
