On Wednesday, August 8, USAID organized an outreach event in partnership with Berytech and in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture in Zahle (CCIAZ) to promote the LED project to potential companies, business associations, and stakeholders located in Bekaa and to inform them about how to benefit from the project’s technical assistance.
More than 120 companies attended and learned about LED’s objectives: creating jobs, increasing enterprise competitiveness, accelerating the growth of Lebanese companies, and improving the business environment in Lebanon.
CCIAZ Vice President Mr. Said Gedeon, welcomed the project and highlighted the “support of the chamber of Zahle to LED project in creating more job opportunities in Bekaa”. He concludes, “it’s our role in the chamber to promote development and growth, this is why we are here for you to create hope and overcome challenges in all circumstances. Also, I want to thank USAID for investing in Lebanon and helping the Lebanese youth and Berytech for their professional team and I think together we will reach our objectives.”
With this event in Zahle, LED has covered all Lebanese areas with the aim of offering technical assistance to all citizens/companies no matter their location.
