Promote event in Paris with Senior Transport Specialist from the World Bank

In May, we held a Promote event in Paris with Ziad Nakat, Senior transport specialist at the World Bank where he presented the bank’s projects in infrastructure in Lebanon, focusing on the transport sector which is a rapidly increasing portion of the World Bank’s portfolio of investments in Lebanon with about $1bn additional investment for the next two years.

There was an interactive discussion about the three main transport projects:

  • Greater Beirut Public Transport Project (BRT)
  • Beirut Airport Expansion
  • Roads rehabilitation

The audience engaged with Ziad about the feasibility of these projects and asked open questions about their potential impact on the Lebanese economy as well as the situation with the Syrian refugees.
