On October 14, 2019, the Libyan Government Economic Institutions met with several U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. to discuss advancing economic reforms and addressing Libya's challenges. This is part of an ongoing dialogue on which U.S. and Libyan officials coordinate regularly. Senior officials from the the U.S. Departments of State, Energy and Treasury and the National Security Council met with their Libyan counterparts to review best practices in enhancing the Libyan public's confidence in the transparency and sound governance of Libyan economic institutions. In addition to this, U.S. and Libyan officials discussed Libya's ability to overcome the challenges impeding economic growth along with subsidy reforms and continued investment in the energy sector. This process remains a pillar of Libya's diplomatic engagement with the United States, with the next technical meeting set to be in Tunis, Tunisia.
