The ministry of tourism during Gaddafi’s government was called: “The General Board for Tourism and Traditional Industries” (الهيئة العامة للسياحة والصناعات التقليدية). The Committee for Tourism and Traditional Industries was established to oversee and regulate tourism in Libya. The Board had a poor website, with hardly any information about Libya (www.libyan-tourism.org). Its address was: AlJala Road, P.O. Box 82063 (and P.O. Box 71981), Tripoli, Libya; Tel: (+218) 21 3334673; (+218) 21 503 041; Fax: (+218) 21 4445336.
