Daewoo E&C to get back to work in Libya after civil war

Daewoo Engineering & Construction, a major shipbuilder, said yesterday it will resume its operations in Libya after suspending them due to the civil war there.

The move came as the builder has successfully checked the facilities at a thermal power plant being built in the eastern city of Benghazi, a former rebel stronghold during an uprising-turned-civil war last year that resulted in the killing of Libyan leader Muammar el-Qaddafi.

Daewoo E&C said its seven construction sites emerged almost unscathed from the civil war. Currently, the builder said about 50 Koreans and 349 foreigners work at four construction sites, down from nearly 3,000 workers before the war.
