Some of the obstacles facing the iron and steel industry in Libya were also discussed, including the energy shortage, both natural gas and electricity, as well as problems related to local iron scrap high costs and the low quality of what is available for purchase; because it continues to be exported.

The conversation also revolved around the iron ores scarcity and high prices in the foreign market and consideration of the possibility of benefiting from local iron ores in southern Libya.

As well as the possibility of entering into investments to set up a project to establish a factory for pelletizing iron ores in the Republic of Mauritania and the communication that took place with the Mauritanian authorities regarding it.

Regarding the marketing of the product, His Excellency the Minister promised to make every effort to support the Company to enter its products into African markets.
