Libya needs the full support of the international community, said Isa Al Twaijri, the Libyan minister in charge of transparency and the fight against corruption, addressing today the inauguration of a centre in the southern Italian city of Caserta which will organize training courses for public administration officials in Arab countries.

The centre has been set up by the OECD and the Italian public administration school (SSPA), which trains public managers.

'Libya needs everybody's support', said Al Twijri, adding that 'we are counting on your help to unite the Libyan people with the international community'.

Rolf Alter, the director of the OECD's Public Governance said he was struck by 'Italy's incredible effort to organize this centre' while the President of SSPA Giovanni Tria stressed the great effort to be made 'to accompany the democratic transition in Middle Eastern and North African regions, sponsoring dialogue between public administrations'.

Libya's position was shared by representatives of other countries which have experienced the Arab Spring as post-regime democracies 'still need to do much', said the Libyan minister and 'getting everybody's help is essential'.

'Today's problems depend on a sort of interruption of the development process as we must now deal with the public administration's inability to do many things', said Al Twijri, who also accused Gaddafi of 'having created complete reliance on oil'.

The minister cited as a priority 'fighting corruption and promoting a well-trained labour force' as well as 'improving sectors such as education and healthcare'.

Abdelaadim El Guerrouj, the Moroccan minister for modernization and the administration, said 'Morocco strongly believes in the promotion of dialogue to support national reforms'. He also said that 'this is a difficult time during which cooperation ties need to be strengthened to respond to the concerns of our countries'.

The minister announced that Morocco is working on the institution of a centre to evaluate public policies.

Jordan also expressed satisfaction along with Tunisia. 'We have chosen to abide by international governance rules', stressed Abderrahman Ladgham, the Tunisian minister in charge of transparency.
