Stakeholder Relations for a NYSE-listed Firm in Libya

As Libya continues integrating into global markets and increasing its national oil production, a major New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) traded fuels, lubricants, and chemicals company expressed interest in entering the Libyan market. Our role was to facilitate engagement with Libyan officials to explore opportunities for the company’s introduction into the Libyan market.

Initial Assessment and Stakeholder Identification

We began by conducting an initial assessment to understand the regulatory and market landscape in Libya. This involved:

  • Market Analysis: Reviewing the current state of the Libyan oil and chemical markets to identify potential opportunities and challenges.
  • Regulatory Review: Examining the regulatory requirements for foreign companies seeking to enter the Libyan market.
  • Stakeholder Mapping: Identifying key stakeholders, including government officials, regulatory bodies, and industry leaders, who would play a crucial role in the company’s market entry.

Engagement Strategy

With a clear understanding of the market and regulatory environment, we developed an engagement strategy to facilitate introductions and build relationships with key stakeholders:

  • Preliminary Meetings: Arranged a series of initial online meetings with key stakeholders to introduce the company’s intentions and gather feedback on the proposed market entry.
  • Feedback Collection: Collected and analysed feedback from these meetings to refine the company’s approach and address any concerns raised by the stakeholders.
  • Relationship Building: Fostered relationships with key stakeholders through regular communication and updates, ensuring ongoing engagement and support for the company’s market entry.

Facilitating In-Person Engagement

The positive outcomes from the online meetings led to a decision for an in-person visit by the company’s delegation to Libya. We facilitated this visit by:

  • Logistics Coordination: Coordinating travel logistics and arranging meetings with key stakeholders, including government officials and industry leaders.
  • Agenda Setting: Developing a comprehensive agenda for the visit, including site visits, meetings, and networking events to maximise the delegation’s time in Libya.
  • Cultural Briefing: Providing the delegation with cultural and business etiquette briefings to ensure effective communication and relationship-building during their visit.

Ongoing Support and Follow-Up

Following the successful in-person visit, we continued to support the company by:

  • Action Plan Development: Assisting in the development of a detailed action plan based on the insights and feedback gathered during the visit.
  • Stakeholder Communication: Maintaining regular communication with Libyan stakeholders to keep them informed of the company’s progress and address any ongoing concerns.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Providing guidance on regulatory compliance and assisting with the necessary documentation and approvals for market entry.


Our efforts resulted in significant progress towards the company’s entry into the Libyan market. Key achievements included:

  • Strengthened Relationships: Established strong relationships with key Libyan stakeholders, facilitating a supportive environment for the company’s market entry.
  • Strategic Insights: Provided the company with valuable insights into the Libyan market and regulatory landscape, enabling them to make informed decisions.
  • Successful Delegation Visit: Coordinated a successful in-person visit that enhanced the company’s credibility and demonstrated their commitment to the Libyan market.
  • Ongoing Engagement: Ensured continuous engagement and support from Libyan stakeholders, paving the way for a smooth market entry.

This strategic initiative has positioned the NYSE-listed firm to successfully enter and operate in the Libyan market, contributing to Libya’s economic growth and integration into global markets. The effective stakeholder relations facilitated by our team have laid a strong foundation for the company’s long-term success in the region.
