The IE Alumni Club in Lebanon in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy in Beirut and  the Department of Economics at the American University of Beirut hosted the panel discussion LEBANON & SPAIN: Two Countries, One Vision Out of the Economic Crisis on December 9.

The panel discussion, that focused on Spain and Lebanon’s relations, started by opening keynote by Miss Sabine Yazbeck the Director of Business Development for the MENA Region at IE Business School and Mr Wael Kechli the president of IE Lebanon Club, followed by a visionary talk by Ambassador Milagros Hernando Ambassador of Spain in Lebanon.

Lebanon and Spain are two nations distinctly revered for their unique culture and beauty. Yet, they are in the midst of an economic crisis. Spain is suffering the implication of the European crisis and the global economic downturn while Lebanon is entering its 10th month without a government and is constantly affected by the spillovers of the civil unrest in neighboring Syria.

Four guest panelists discussed the relationship between Lebanon and Spain in order to see where the challenges lie, and bilateral trade and investment opportunities can be boosted between the two.

The event featured the following speakers:

  • H.E. Raya El Hassan: Former Finance Minister in Lebanon, Program specialist for the Economic Governance and Pro-Poor portolio,2005, United Nations Development Program (Lebanon Country Office). We are very proud of counting with her opinions in the panel also because she was the first woman to be elected Minister in the country.
  • Dr. Gonzalo Garland: Spanish Expert in the fields of Economic Environment and Business in Emerging markets. Professor and Vice-president for Development at IE.
  • Mr. Mohamed Choukair: President of the Federation of Chambers of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Lebanon (FCCIAL) and President of ASCAME (Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry).
  • Ms. Leila Sawaya El Khoury: UNDP Project Manager, President of the Council at Investment Development Authority of Lebanon (IDAL).

The panel was moderated by Youmna Naufal, Head of the English News Desk at Future News Television.

We would like to thank the representatives of the IE Alumni Club in Lebanon for their effort in organizing this event.
