Commercial Law Assessment Focus Groups

June 16, 2016

USLBA in collaboration with the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) is hosting focus groups for a comprehensive Commercial Law and Practice Assessment in Libya, which seeks to analyze the general business legal and regulatory environment affecting company participation in Libya’s economy, both as it applies to existing companies and to the possibility of creating new businesses. In addition, the assessment will also review any special considerations relevant to specific types of businesses and commercial actors, such as micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), women-owned companies, and foreign investors.

The project is a collaborative initiative involving ABA ROLI, US-Libya Business Association (USLBA), and other stakeholders. The final assessment report will be presented to key stakeholders and used as a springboard for the development of a strategy for strengthening of the legal framework and its implementation.
