Energy Capital & Power, the organizer of the Libya Energy & Economic Summit 2021 in Tripoli being held on 22 and 23 November, sat down with the Minister of Oil and Gas, H.E. Mohamed Oun and his team at African Energy Week on 9 November to talk about the agenda for the upcoming conference, with the Minister inviting regional counterparts from Europe, North Africa, The Sahel, and The Middle East to attend the Summit.
The Libya Energy & Economic Summit takes place in the wake of the African Energy Week and the COP26 Summit, charting the future of Libya’s energy industry. Key themes of the summit will involve inclusivity, the energy transition, and strategic partnerships in energy and power. The event will mark the first international energy event in Tripoli in almost a decade and will drive foreign capital into the country’s energy sector, utilizing sectoral revitalization as a catalyst for broader economic growth.
Recent regulatory reforms are seen as a driving force of enhanced investment and international oil company participation. Representing one of Africa’s top oil producing nations, Libya’s energy sector will not only bring significant benefits for the population but will open new and improved export opportunities to global markets.
H.E. Mohamed Oun and ECP invite regional and African counterparts and companies to take part in the Libya Energy & Economic Summit 2021.
