    FRANCE, 2013/08/12 France's Monoprix will be the initial international supermarket chain to set up shop in Libya, with 52 outlets in the next five years. Monoprix was brought to Libya by the HBG group under the Libyan entrepreneur Husny Bey through a franchising with the Tunisian Société Nouvelle Maison de la Ville de Tunis (SNMVT), which uses the Monoprix name. The initial supermarket was opened in the capital in March on a surface area of some 5,000 square metres and an extra 52 will be opened over the coming months in other areas of the capital and the rest of the country.
