Minister's Letter

Dear Lebanese, Dear Descendants,

Here we are, together for the fourth year, preparing for the Lebanese Diaspora Energy 2017 to witness a new Lebanon, a new Phoenix rising from the ashes youthfully, full of energy, determination and hope.
As I promised you, you were always our priority and the everlasting source of richness and pride. The journey of your success that we are celebrating continues to flourish, yet our efforts to engage you in Lebanon's future is being enhanced and followed thoroughly in order to fulfill and accomplish our governments obligations towards you.
With the elections of a new President of the Republic and the set of a new government, we offer you a startup plan for development and a strong back up of stability while other resources are awaited to be explored.
After three successful major LDEs in Beirut, and three regional LDEs held in New York, Sao Paolo and Johannesburg; the bet is more secured that your participation is worthy to deliver a strong message that we are united and engaged to build a nation crowned by Lebanity and vested by achievements, excellence and creations, where there are no boundaries to our dreams and where Lebanon can be seen again as a sovereign, free, and independent country: a final homeland for all its citizens.
I look forward to seeing each and every one of you in Beirut in May 2017!

Long live Lebanity
Long live Lebanon
