Maiteeq: The collapse of Tunisia’s economy has serious consequences for Libya
Libya's previous deputy prime Minister comments on the repercussions the collapse of Tunisia's economy would have on Libya
The collapse of the Tunisian economy, according to Ahmed Maiteeq, Deputy Prime Minister of Libya’s previous Government of National Accord (GNA), would have significant repercussions on Libya’s economy, defense, and stability, and vice versa.
The politician’s remarks come during a visit to Libya by a Tunisian delegation led by the Prime Minister and joined by a high-level ministerial and business team to hold meetings and discuss ties and cooperation with their Libyan counterparts.
The Tunisian delegation is scheduled to meet with the head of the Government of National Unity (GNU), the President of the Presidential Council, and the Governor of the Central Bank and a number of economists and financial workers.
This visit comes after Tunisia’s negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) faltered and social protests escalated.
