Our mission

Since the 2011 revolution the UK has been working to support Libya's transition to democracy.  Through our projects we provide assistance to the Libyan government and Libyan civil society, helping them to build a transparent and accountable state based on the rule of law and respect for human rights.

Through our work with the World Bank and our series of trade missions we also support the creation of a diverse and thriving economy which improves the commercial relationship between the UK and Libya.

British Embassy Tripoli

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) returned to Libya in March 2011, following a brief suspension of embassy services at the start of the revolution in February 2011. Based initially in Benghazi, before returning to Tripoli in September 2011, the FCO is working to support Libya's transition to democracy and helping Libyans to build an accountable state based on the rule of law and respect for human rights. Libya remains an important priority for the UK: the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary have each visited twice since 2011 and Mr Burt, Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, has visited three times.
