Abstract

Libya possesses vast supplies of undeveloped land with enormous potential for various sectors' development. Recently Libya has decided to develop the tourism sector to enhance the national economy, which for so many years has been bolstered by the oil industry. The huge space of undeveloped land can be exploited in broadening the base of tourism development in terms of new construction work and new or refurbishment of facilities to meet the requirements of the international tourism markets. The paper is going to discuss two major issues: First, the state's role in facilitating the regulations both in terms of land use, financial support and other related aspects as well as the essential implications needed to encourage both local and foreign investors to invest in tourism-related services. Second, a SWOT analysis for Libya as a tourist destination and development proposals for the essential prerequisites needed for the development of the Libya's tourism resources will be presented.
