Minister Fast wraps up a three-day trade mission to Libya to help Canadian companies re-engage with the country during its historic transition. Fifteen Canadian companies accompanied the Minister on the visit.

“My trade mission to Libya builds on Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s commitment to helping the country transition to a peaceful democracy based on the rule of law and respect for human rights,” said Minister Fast. “I am here to help Canadian companies restore and build new business partnerships with Libyans that will foster stability and prosperity and contribute to the country’s rebuilding.

“By working with local partners, Canadian firms will help Libyans reinvigorate their economy, which in turn will create jobs and prosperity for Canadians and Libyans alike.”
