Libya needs 1m Egyptian workers for reconstruction

Libya needs nearly one million Egyptian workers to take part in the reconstruction of the country, says its Labour and Rehabilitation Minister, Ali Al-Abed

Al-Abed’s remarks came during a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart, Mohamed Saafan, held in the Egyptian capital Cairo to announce the launch of a joint electronic link system that aims at regulating travel for workers between the two countries.

Libya had been a major hub for Egyptian workers for decades; almost one million worked there in different fields until Egyptian authorities ordered the evacuation of their nationals after a Daesh affiliated militia kidnapped and beheaded more than 20 Egyptian Christian workers in 2017.
