The Prime Minister of Libya’s internationally recognized government in Tobruk has held a meeting with the Chairman and Board of the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) in Malta, the Libya Herald has reported.
Abdullah al-Thinni [Al-Thani, al-Thanay] (pictured), acting in his capacity as Head of the Board of Trustees of the LIA. said:
‘‘The Board of Trustees have been reassured on the performance of the Libyan Investment Authority. We should portray these achievements of the LIA before the Libyan people so they also feel the same assurance and work to encompass all who are after reform and prosperity of the Libyan people”.
The meeting was attended by Board of Trustees members:
- Kamil Alhassi, Minister for Finance and Planning;
- Mounir Assir, Minister for Economy and Industry; and,
- Ali Hibri, Governor of the eastern-based Central Bank of Libya (CBL).
The Malta-based LIA is loyal to the internationally recognized Tobruk government, and its legitimacy is contested by the LIA headquarters in Tripoli.
