- Libya recorded an economic downturn in the second half of 2013, mainly due to disruptions to oil production caused by the mounting protests at the country’s major oilfields and export terminals. Oil production should gradually resume and boost GDP growth in 2014/15.
- Regional and tribal factions, as well as expanding militia activities, pose an increasing challenge to the authorities and their management of strategic hydrocarbon earnings, as well as diverting attention away from constitutional and socio-economic reforms.
- Participation in global value chains is hampered by lack of diversification, a poorly developed private sector, infrastructure limitations and the regulatory environment.
