Gaddafi's death is a turning point for Libya that Foley Associates will discuss at its event, Libya: The Future 2, which aims to mark a step forward in the peace process and promote the troubled country for business opportunities and C&I tourism.

The statement reads: "The death of Colonel Gaddafi marks a historic end to the struggle for freedom for the Libyan people. The National Transitional Council (NTC) will soon be announcing the formation of a new democratic government and that process will now be accelerated as Libya gets back to its economic role as the richest country in Africa."

Libya: The Future 2 conference takes place on 14 November 2011 at the QE11 Conference Centre Westminster London.

The event continues the dialogue started in September at the initial Libydafia: The Future conference focussing on how British industry and businesses can help rebuild Libya and do business with the new Libyan regime.
