In an increasingly interconnected world, ICT has become indispensable. Libya’s demographic profile, with a median age of 26.1 as of 2020, creates a conducive environment for digitalisation. By leveraging digital technologies and communications networks, Misrata aims to take advantage of physical infrastructure like road connections, ports and industrial capacity to drive economic growth across sectors. This is visible in the transition of the Misurata Free Zone to fully electronic operational management.

They are a foundation for fostering innovation, improving efficiency, and promoting transparency and accountability
