Moreover, after reviewing the 2019 report of the Construction Companies and Infrastructure in the Libyan State from its official website via Internet, it has been found that the financial value of the contracts for projects until the end of 2012 was 44 billion Libyan Dinars. Likewise, there are many contracts in large financial amounts in all areas and basic facilities of the State, but large numbers of these contracts have been entirely or partially stopped, or the percentage of their achievement is, or the ministry has not spent any amounts on these contracts yet.
