We have participated at the Euromed Migration III peer-to-peer meeting on 24-25 September in Slovenia to discuss the potential of migrants in the region's respective countries and to look into ways to better coordinate and facilitate a concerted and consolidated approach between the public sector and the migrant entrepreneur communities.
Chairman of IDAL, Mr. Nabil Itani, emphasized during his presentation on the local successes between the government and the private sector and on the pioneering role of Lebanese emigrants to the national economy.
IDAL received a courtesy visit from the Ambassador of Mexico to Lebanon, Mr. Jaime Garcia Amaral. The visit aimed at enhancing business relationships between both countries, especially that Mexico holds a large Lebanese diaspora that could act as a liaison in establishing businesses and forging partnerships. The main issue discussed involved the various obstacles to export to Mexico from Lebanon and ways to facilitate such transactions, in addition to organizing mutual investment and trade missions.
Chairman of IDAL has toured the packaging houses in the Bekaa that fall under the Agri Plus Program, the program that is managed by IDAL for agriculture export development. The tours come as part of a routine quarterly visit to oversee the developments and improvements of the packing houses and to ensure their compliance with the criteria and standards set forth by the program. All packing houses visited have voiced their readiness to develop their business and work towards quality certifications for production and packaging.
