Saber Boqara, the Executive Director of the Libyan-Tunisian Economic Cooperation Council, declared that they had obtained commitments from the Tunisian Minister of Transport, Maiz Shachouk, to grant them licenses to launch the tourist and commercial route Misrata-Tunia.

After obtaining the approval of the acting Ministers of Finance and Interior and completing the procedures on the Tunisian side, Boqara stated that the maritime line will be a connection between Libya and the Shadi Wadi and Gargis in a statement to a Tunisian radio station.

The Director of the Cooperation Council reported on an attempt to establish a maritime line for the Libyan community between Europe and the Tunisian city of Gargis, with a monthly capacity of 4,000 passengers, 1800 high and commercial vehicles, and 12 thousand tons of goods.

He said that they had made requests to the Tunisian authorities, specifically the Governor of the Central Bank, Marwan Abbasi, and Finance Minister Ali Al-Kali, to facilitate Libyan banking, noting that the emphasis would shift to the Ra’s Ajdir line once the Tunisia-Misrata line was opened.

The Libyan-Tunisian Economic Cooperation Council declared in April that a maritime line between the two countries will be opened soon.

The Council reported at the time that Sabir Boqara had expressed the willingness of a group of Libyan and Tunisian businessmen to work toward the development of Tunisian-Libyan trade relations and the creation of joint investment projects during his meeting with the Tunisian Minister of Transport and Logistics.

After the necessary procedures and arrangements on the Tunisian side were completed, the Director of the Council announced the completion of the Misrata Sea Port project and the Libyan side’s desire to open a maritime passenger and motor transport line linking the port of Misrata in Libya to the the port of Sfax in Tunisia.
