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.
