The third power talk breakfast hosted Nadim Gemayel who’s vision is setting a global plan for the government to support entrepreneurship through facilitating access to local and international markets.
Gemayel discussed the necessity of shifting from relying on private initiatives to grow the entrepreneurial sector to a nation-wide government strategy that incorporates education, infrastructure and legislation: “The work that Circular 331 has done to initiate the structures of a knowledge economy, in addition to the cultural readiness to embrace entrepreneurship and innovation has set in motion this need for an organized sector led by the Lebanese government.”
Focusing on the idea that the entrepreneur’s sole objective should be building and growing his venture, Gemayel discussed the importance of having in place a plan to assure and facilitate the access to local and international markets. From having the army buy and adopt local technologies to encouraging Lebanese embassies world-wide to lead the Lebanese presence in fairs and consortiums, Gemayel assured that Lebanon can lead in dissipating new technologies to the region.
Nadim Gemayel is a member of the Lebanese parliament (Beirut district – Maronite seat) since June 2009. He builds up on his father’s, vision of a free and united Lebanon, adding his own patriotic and modern ideas to offer Lebanon and its people a sound state-of-the-art government.
