Presidency of the
Council of Ministers
We organized a conference titled 'Invest in Media' at the Cinemacity in Beirut Souks in partnership with Fondation Liban Cinema to encourage investments in the sector, in particular film production.
The event was under the patronage and presence of the Minister of Information and Minister of Culture whereby they foresaw the signing of a memorandum of understanding between IDAL, represented by Chairman Nabil Itani and Fondation Liban Cinema, represented by its President Mrs. Maya de Freige. The conference included three panels of discussion covering investment opportunities, challenges, support and new sector trends.
We met a Chinese delegation from the Ministry of Commerce to boost trade and economic relations and look into FDI computation methodologies. Mr. Itani emphasized on the fact that the economic relations between Lebanon and China are not recent and that Lebanon was the first Arab country to sign a treaty with China 60 years ago.
IDAL sponsored the “Beirut Film festival”, which was organized between 12 and 18 March 2015. This sponsorship fell within the framework of the support that IDAL can provide to the media sector in Lebanon, aiming at raising awareness about the services it can offer.
