The Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture in Beirut and Mount Lebanon (CCIABML) inaugurated today (March 8) a branch in Jounieh.

The total built-up area of the office reaches 850 square meters, including a conference hall named ‘Cheikh Nassib Gemayel’, and a meeting room named ‘Hanna Fahed’. It also comprises offices representing the CCIABML and Union of Mount Lebanon Traders, Jounieh and Kesrouan Traders Association, Kesrouan Industrialists Association, Syndicate of Owners of Maritime Touristic Institutions, and a center for processing paperwork.

Mohamed Choucair, Chairman of CCIABML, said: “The new branch was created and equipped with the most advanced technologies in order to host major economic events.”

Choucair said that everyone especially the public sector has become aware of the private sector’s role and capabilities in preserving the national economy. “They look forward to lead development after the state has failed to manage different services especially electricity water and waste.”

Nabil Fahed, Vice Chairman of CCIABML, said: “A united private sector can prevent a lot of suspicious decisions and procedures that would negatively affect the economy. We are required to have more solidarity among us to preserve the economy and achieve measures that encourage business and investments.”
