Hi every one....
First of all I'm a libyan girl, but I've been living in Malaysia for one year. I'm sorry for this but I don't like anyone talking about my country and giving opinions without even visiting or reading about it. However, let's go back to Libya now. Our population is very few comparing to other African countries next to us like Egypt , Algeria and Sudan. There aren't any poor people in Libya, because the government always provides us with lots of benefits. If you had a libyan nationality that means that you are going to live at high life standard. Moreover, 97% of the people are Muslims ,but all of us respect other religions. Furthermore, there are lots of work opportunities in many fields. the Libyan governments don't seperate or make different between girls and boys. you can find women workers anywhere. These are few information about Libya. If you want more try to google it.
THANK YOU....
