The Permanent Secretary for Foreign and European Affairs, Christopher Cutajar, led a Maltese delegation to Tripoli and Benghazi to inspect the required arrangements for the reopening of the Maltese Consulate in Benghazi.

The group met with key figures in Benghazi, including the mayor, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture, and the general body in charge of privatization and investment, according to the Times of Malta daily.

The delegation also paid a visit to Benghazi’s port, where they interacted with both the port management and the port authorities.

Maritime cooperation, the rebuilding of buildings and bridges that have fallen, technological advancements, and investments in waste separation and renewable energy were all addressed during the sessions.

While the battle had a major impact on Benghazi over the previous decade, Cutajar stated the residents have the necessary resolve to see the city rebuilt and its economic activities thrive.
