“The meeting with people from Klas was very successful. I am very optimistic and I hope that their advice would be helpful. Klas is one of the companies that passed through all aspects of privatization and has the experience that Libya requires. Of course, we will use all advice that we received from the owner Mujo Selimović, and we will use it to apply it to our needs. In every case, it was very interesting to hear through which phases Klas has passed. What additionally instills confidence in us is the fact that the owner understands the Libyan market well’’, said Professor Abdalla I. Shamia after the meeting.
