Holidays’ First Tidings:
Election of Lebanon’s President
This year’s holidays take celebration to a new level that culminated in electing H.E. General Michel Aoun as President of the Republic and appointing H.E. Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri to form the Council of Ministers, giving the Lebanese people cause for optimism to hope for a brighter future.
Holidays by nature abound with wishes and their festive manifestations spread throughout the nation, from beautifully decorated streets to trees shimmering with lights, affirming that Lebanon continues to be the land of affection and the bearer of a heritage of permanent peace.
“The election of President Aoun should lead to a normal activity of the Constitutional Institutions, thus increasing confidence in the economy,” as H.E. Governor of the Lebanese Central Bank Riad Salameh said in the Opening Ceremony of the third edition of Banque du Liban’s international startup conference “BDL Accelerate 2016”, whose positive impact echoed throughout Lebanon and the world.
May God grant you goodwill and joy this holiday season and grant MEA constant renewal that continues to earn your high regard and exceed your expectations on board the wings of the cedars.
- Merry Christmas. May you and Lebanon have a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
