While the driving force behind our nation building experience so far has been our collective ambition for socio-economic and democratic transformation, Libya can do better.
Looking Forward with Confidence
In formulating a vision for Libya, we cannot dwell on lost opportunities and what we lack. We must adopt a forward-looking approach that critically reviews our institutions, policies, and existing plans with confidence in our ability to learn from the past and change. Libya is not starting a nation from scratch but rediscovering its rich cultural and societal values that formed its foundation in the past. It is upon this foundation that we have formulated Ihya Libya Vision 2023.
While peace and security is a pre-requisite for Libya’s future, there is an equally pressing need to address the economic, human development, and governance challenges Libya faces. However, the most critical challenge Libya now faces is developing in a participatory manner through dialogue and agreement on a shared vision.
