The president of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Tripoli, Tawfiq Daboussi, thanked King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for their assistance and friendship to Lebanon.
His comments came as he welcomed a delegation from the Saudi Shoura Council, led by Saleh Al-Khalewi. They were joined by Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Walid bin Abdullah Bukhari, and Mayor of Tripoli Ahmad Qamaruddin.
The group toured the ancient citadel of Tripoli, during which they heard a detailed explanation of its historic military importance and the key present-day role it plays in tourism.
Daboussi also gave a presentation discussing “the importance of the investment project represented by the integrated economic city in its Lebanese, Arab, regional and international dimensions.”
Al-Khalewi said: “Lebanon is a brotherly country and Tripoli is a city that has its own specificity.
“We hope that this city will enjoy security and stability. We also hope that its good people will get past the recent troubles it faced. Their speedy recovery is a great sign of their nature.
“We see in the investment project … an ambitious plan based on attracting large investments that encourage Arabs and other countries. There is no better place than the great Tripoli, with its distinctive and unique environment.” SPA Beirut
