    Dear members of the Lebanese community and friends of Lebanon,

    The Consul General of Lebanon Majdi Ramadan and the American University of Beirut (AUB) are organizing a workshop titled “Beyond Austerity: Reforming the Lebanese Economy”.
    The workshop will present an opportunity to examine the current economic model in Lebanon, offer specific recommendations for structural reforms and fiscal planning in the light of the current proposed budget, and envision a new economic regional role for Lebanon.
    The workshop will be a closed session with experts from Lebanon and the United States, followed by a public presentation of the participants’ recommendations.

    To present the conclusions of the workshop, we would like to invite you to a “Reception and Interactive Panel Discussion” on Friday July 12, 2019, at 6 pm at AUB’s New York Office at 3 Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10017.
    Issues such as the CEDRE investment conference, austerity measures, currency devaluation, job creation, corruption, investment, refugees, and Lebanon’s potential to rely on its traditional economic sectors will be addressed. Examples from other countries that have had similar experiences will be considered in order to identify ways to turn current challenges into future opportunities.
    Kindly RSVP on the following link: Beyond Austerity: Reforming the Lebanese Economy
    We look forward to seeing you.
