Following December’s historic Business Forum, the Embassy of Lebanon in the UK and DMA are delighted to announce that the Government of Lebanon is looking forward to receiving a high-level delegation to Beirut on 18th and 19th March. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the Office of the Prime Minister, key officials, decision-makers and engage directly with many of the country’s most investable projects under its Capital Investment Programme.

The mission will visit Beirut for two full days of bilaterals with government and parastatals, networking opportunities with leading businesses and visits to key infrastructure sites. The mission itinerary will allow for substantive engagement with officials in the country with the flexibility to tailor the programme to fit the needs of the delegates attending.
