Council of Ministers
IDAL and ESCWA inaugurated the “National Training Workshop on FDI Computation” held at the Crown Plaza Hotel, in the presence of delegates from Lebanese ministries, official institutions and Chambers of Commerce as well as banks.
Mr. Abdullah Dardari, Director of Development and Globalization in the ESCWA, stressed on the importance of FDI statistics in the investment policy, their impact on the economy in general, and on the growth rates in particular. He stated that the Arab region receives the least investment rates in the world, with a maximum ratio of 20 percent of the national income for some Arab economies, while the rates recorded in China, for instance, are about 40 percent.
