Libya Invites International Bids for Telecom Licences

Libya invited bids by foreign companies to provide private mobile-phone and landline services, Agence France-Presse said yesterday, citing an unidentified spokesman for the state-owned General Telecommunication Authority.

The North African country, which is expected to grant a fixed-line license and mobile license to one operator, is opening to foreign operators for the first time as it aims to stimulate the Libyan telecom market, AFP reported.
