Maltese PM Visits Libya
Maltese Prime Minister Eddie Fenech Adami left last week for a two-day visit to Libya expected to focus on oil and shipping. Government sources said talks with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi were expected to focus on trade and the renewal of a contract for Libya to sell oil to Malta at favorable rates. A large delegation of Maltese businessmen and industrialists headed by Economic Services Minister Josef Bonnici will also be over in Libya. Bonnici said his visit marked the start of an active trade promotion program with Libya for the next two years. Malta's Export Trade Corporation also intends opening an office in Libya.
