IE Lebanon Club Beirut Chapter held its Annual Christmas Dinner in Beirut at Cinco Lounge in Ashrafieh on Thursday, December 26, 2013. About 30 alumni attended the dinner, Club members mingled with the guests, facilitating introductions and networking between current and “soon-to-be” students. These new students received valuable information about IE and Madrid from the alumni and now have contacts with current students already in Madrid to help them arrive in Spain ready to work and contribute to IE and to the club from day one. The event highlights the great strides that the IE Lebanon Club has made over the last few years. The club celebrated the success of an economic panel organized by the Lebanon Club, on the 9th of Dec  “Lebanon & Spain: two countries, one vision out of the economic crisis”


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.
