Know Libya - Cultural Awareness

Know Libya (registered in Libya as M’arafat Libya Company Limited) specialises in providing tailor made solutions to clients' needs in Libya.

Libya is an intriguing country. It offers a rich history, alongside an interesting combination of Islamic and Mediterranean influences. Tripoli, its busy capital, mixes colourful cultural traditions and the new norms of modern life. Libya is embarking on an ambitious economic development and reform programme, which is attracting interest from international companies wanting to do business in Libya. For these plans to succeed it is important there is better cultural awareness on all sides, helping make working together easier and more productive for everyone.

We offer a range of cultural awareness services designed to help improve cultural understanding. These include services for expatriates working and living in Libya, and for Libyans working in international environments.

Knowing that relocating to work and live in a new country can be an exciting and challenging experience (we’ve done it!), our cultural awareness training courses aim to support international companies, their employees and their families, who are living and working in Libya.
