The Egyptian Minister of Labor said that we have been working on this system since the signing of the memorandum of understanding between the two countries, so that we can come up with a new model that is in the interest of Egyptian workers, noting that this system aims to ensure that work contracts should be audited in order to preserve Egyptian workers in the country of work. .
He added that no worker will travel except for the accepted job to ensure that the Egyptian labor is not tampered with, stressing that the Egyptian labor will be a support for the Libyan state in the reconstruction, pointing out that there will be an advertisement for the required jobs through the website of the Ministry of Manpower.
