The article presents the economic and political risk assessment about Libya as of July 2005. The gathering of some 300 Libyan opposition leaders in London on 26 June heard predictable calls for the removal of Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi, and his regime's replacement with a government based on "democracy and the rule of law." On the economic front, the government appears to be serious about its plans to modernize the country's banking system, with plans to privatize a second state-owned bank to private investors.
