HUMAN RESOURCES IN RELATION OF FDI: AN EMPIRICAL STUDY ON LIBYAN BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

The availability of human resources both in terms of quantity and quality is a prerequisite for the success of any investment programme. An increase in the population will lead to the expansion of the market which should lead to more investment or the expansion of the already existing investment programmes. In addition, improvements in skill levels will lead to the improvement of the quality and quantity of production. The paper aims to examine whether or not human resources in Libya is appropriate to attract foreign companies, particularly in the non-hydrocarbon sectors. Paper method used is based on qualitative research through two methods of data collection. A survey which was conducted by using a questionnaire with representatives of the foreign and joint companies in order to discover their opinions in relation to human resources in Libya. A structured interview technique was also used to gauge the opinions of the senior Libyan officials, whose jobs were related to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) operations, with the objective of establishing the most important challenges facing the public administration in order to improve the business environment. The study reveals that despite the numerous obstacles and shortcomings associated with human resources in Libya, it is relatively favourable for attracting FDI to the non-oil sectors. It also shows that the majority of the companies’ representatives appear to be satisfied with the quality of human resources in terms of technical know-how, language and team-work. Furthermore, it discovered that foreign and joint companies face difficulties associated with employment particularly in relation to the laws which curtail the import of foreign labour, which is necessary as the supply of local skilled labour is inadequate.

Competitive Advantage of Libyan Business Environment

The economic development needs of developing countries require capital accumulation, which is no longer an easy task, even for industrialized countries. Although borrowing remains an important alternative, it has proved to be an expensive method in the long run. Consequently, to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), developing countries have been liberalizing their economies, which is expected to contribute to job creation and income generation. Libya declared its intention to liberalize its economy and to integrate into the global economy in order to achieve comprehensive development. This study investigates and explores the condition of the Libyan business environment in relation to foreign and joint companies, particularly in the non-oil sectors. This paper aims to investigate whether or not the Libyan business environment is appropriate to attract foreign companies, particularly in the non-hydrocarbon sectors. The method used in this paper is based on creating Porter model of competitive advantage of in relation to attract FDI. The paper reveals clearly that apart from substantial oil reserves, Libya is rich in other resources. Despite these positive advantages, there are numerous obstacles and shortcomings associated with the Libyan business environment. It discovered that the general structure and policies in relation to the Libyan business environment still require considerable attention to bring about the political and administrative stability, as well as the stability of laws and regulations. Furthermore, intensive media campaigns need to be launched with all the necessary legal and political guarantees for attracting FDI into the country.

Libya and Foreign Investments: Using SWOT Model to Evaluate the Libyan Business Environment

This paper aims to investigate whether or not the Libyan business environment is appropriate to attract foreign companies, particularly in the non-hydrocarbon sectors. The research method used in this paper is based on qualitative research techniques, and summarise the PhD thesis findings of both methods and categorising them as variables, to create SWOT model to evaluate the Libyan business environment in relation to attracting foreign direct investment (FDI). The paper reveals clear that the weaknesses outnumber the strengths. . It discovered, moreover,that there are many challenges facing Libyan senior officials in order to reform the business environment in order to make it more attractive for FDI. It recommends that Libyan government has to undertake the delayed economic, financial, legal,administrative and political reforms to create the base for efficient resource creationand utilisation in order to boost economic development. This will provide the opportunity for the development of a market economy and also integration into the global economy thereby engaging with multinational companies in order to attract further FDI.

Libyan Economy and Foreign Direct Investments

Foreign investment, particularly FDI, is not a new phenomenon in Libya. The first law in relation to FDI came into force in Libya on 30 January 1958. This was followed by Law No. 37 of 1968, which was amended by Law No. 5 of 1997 with regard to the encouragement of the foreign capital, and which came to force on 29 May 1997, sometime before the enforcement of its executive regulations. A further limited amendment was implemented by Law No. 7 of 2003, which made it possible for local business using capital in Libyan Dinars (LD) to participate in joint ventures with the foreign companies. This law is mainly concerned at encouraging foreign capital, particularly in relation to projects which benefit from the introduction of new technology, training of local staff, diversification of income, the development of local products to meet international standards or otherwise contributing to local development (Article One of Law No. 7). Moreover, the idea of attracting the FDI into the Libyan economy is not new as it started as early as the 1950s. Thereafter FDI played a major role in the discovery of the huge oil and gas reserves which has contributed to increasing the foreign earnings for the state. These earnings have made it possible for the state to push ahead with its programmes of social and economic development across the economy for almost half a century. However, despite the aforementioned advantages FDI in areas other than the hydrocarbon sector has rarely been attracted to Libya. Furthermore, FDI has made little contribution towards increasing the rate of capital accumulation in the Libyan economy. FDI has not exceeded 1.99% of total investment in the 1980s and 1990s. In other words that ratio would indicate that only US$199 would become available for every US$10,000 of the total investment required for economic development in Libya. But as yet most of the FDI in Libya has been directed towards the oil and gas sector (El-Fergani, 2002). This book introduces perceptions of senior Libyan officials towards FDI into the non-oil sectors in Libya, particularly during the period following the establishment of General Authority for Investment Board (LIB) which was established in 1998.

Perceptions of Libyans Senior Officials on Foreign Direct Investment Issues and Challenges

The economic development needs of developing countries require capital accumulation, which is no longer an easy task, even for industrialised countries. Although borrowing remains an important alternative, it has proved to be an expensive method in the long run. Consequently, to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), developing countries have been liberalising their economies, which is expected to contribute to job creation and income generation. The paper aims to answer the research questions of whether or not Libyan experiment of FDI is successful, to what extent are the senior Libyan officials aware of the importance of the inward flow of FDI to boost the process of economic development? What are the strategies involved, and what are the difficulties or challenges facing the improving of the business environment? Paper method used is based on qualitative research through a structured interviews technique, which was conducted with the senior Libyan officials, whose jobs were related to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) operations, with the objective of establishing the most important challenges facing the public administration in order to improve the business environment. The study reveals that despite the numerous obstacles and shortcomings associated with the Libyan business environment, the country’s experiment for attracting FDI described as successful. It also shows that despite this success, there are many challenges facing Libyan policy environment in order to reform the business environment in order to make it more attractive for FDI.
