During his trip to Slovakia, al-Mahmudi was scheduled to meet Prime Minister Robert Fico and to sign agreements on preventing double taxation and the protection of investments.

The Libyan PM was to be accompanied by a large group of entrepreneurs interested in investing in Slovakia. Fico visited Libya in February 2007. The aim of his trip was to intensify bilateral relations between the two countries, with a particular stress on economic and business co-operation. Fico met al-Mahmudi and other members of the Libyan government and also held talks with Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. TASR
