Arig is opening a Representation in Tripoli after receiving the license from the local authorities. The office will attend to Arig’s clients in Libya specifically, paying tribute to the recent development and growth in the market. It will also service nearby countries in the Maghreb. The office will be headed by Salah Al Mabrouk, a Libyan national who has been regular to the region for a number of years.
Arig’s CEO, Yassir Albaharna, stressed: “We are going to Libya in recognition of our current and historically close ties to the market and our clients there. Our relationships date back to the founding days of Arig. They have been tested and proven for 30 years and we intend to make our ties with the growing insurance industry even stronger. We believe we can still be better partners by moving to the doorstep of our clients.”
