A senior executive of the Libyan Tourism and investment Promoting Authority has reported that both the Libyan government and Libyan private sector, specifically, have been taking steps to attract a greater number of tourists to the country.
According to Al-Bayan newspaper, those involved in the effort include more than 300 Libyan public and private travel agencies and businesses. The targeted number of tourists is three million over the next five years, originating from locations such as North America, Southeastern Asia and Europe. The authority is planning on implementing several integrated investment projects for the purpose.
Following the lifting of an embargo previously imposed on the country, Libya has seen a noticeable increase in the number of tourists. Archeology, the desert, and therapeutic remedies have lured more than 570,000 in the past two years. Approximately 100,000 of those have been of European origin, while the remainder have come from Japan, China and Latin America.
