The stock market is expected to reopen within the next five months after being closed for six years because of the war in the country.

Karoud said that the Government of National Unity and Capital Market Authority are working to get the bourse ready to resume trading.

The Capital Market Authority is also reaching out to brokerage firms that have incurred large losses over the years to ensure their financial solvency, he said. Karoud expected the settlement of clearing conditions and their reactivation between the eastern and western regions soon, to overcome any financial.
