Skills Shortage Delays Home Improvements

A lack of skilled tradesmen is said to be restricting business in Benghazi's construction sector, according to a report from Libya Herald.

The general manager of Danube Libya, the UAE-based building supplies group, said he plans to start a marketing campaign to encourage more do-it-yourself (DIY) home improvements, and has also set up a customer credit arrangement with a bank.

Because of employment visa difficulties, there are too few skilled craftsmen, who in the past have come principally from Tunisia and Egypt to take on the work.
