Since the fall of Gadafi’s regime in 2011, USAID has worked closely with the Libyan Government, as well as local communities, companies, and investors to advance peace, prosperity, and with it, a return to economic growth. Towards this objective, the USAID Mission to Libya collaborates with a range of actors and stakeholders, including large multinational corporations, investors, local businesses, community associations, and health and education service providers. The Mission’s current focus is to collaborate with these actors and stakeholders to maintain access to basic goods and services; assist enterprises to grow and access financing; preserve institutions; and promote peace and stability amid the on-going conflict. Together, these actions are designed to lay the groundwork for post-conflict rapid economic growth.
