Tripoli, Libya - At a strategic-level workshop in Geneva today organized by the Libya-based advisory firm Phoenicia Group Libya LLC, (www.phoenicia-group.net), senior Libyan government officials unveiled an ambitious multi-billion dollar infrastructure development plan focused on the renovating and construction of airports, roads, housing, schools, hospitals, and water and sanitation projects nation-wide, as well as the Railway Project.
The Railway Project, an ambitious 4,800 km trans-Africa rail network planned to link Tunisia and Egypt and a southern network linking the Libyan cities of Sirte and Sebha and possibly extended to Chad and Niger, was a major talking point and project of interest in the mold of the Great Man Made River Project, a similar mammoth undertaking.
