About the L.I.B.A.N.

The Lebanese International Businessmen Associations' Network (L.I.B.A.N.) was founded in October 2000 as a nonprofit, nonpolitical association aiming at reinforcing economic and commercial relations and boosting investments between Lebanon people worldwide, specifically creating an interaction between the leading young Lebanese businesspersons in Lebanon and those abroad, thereby contributing to the creation of the first Lebanese International Business Lobby. We firmly believe that tapping into the talents of the Lebanese emigrants is the best way to achieve L.I.B.A.N.'s noble goals, thus contributing to the socio-economic development of Lebanon. The group, therefore, has branches in 30 countries.

L.I.B.A.N. is becoming a powerful business lobby that liaisons between potential investors and governments to grant them facilities and to promote a good investment environment. Consequently, L.I.B.A.N is organising “The First Arab International Forum of Young Entrepreneurs and Businesspersons & MAME YE" Network Conference Series, a two days event on September 30
th and the October 1st 2011, in Lebanon, at the Phoenicia Intercontinental Hotel.
