News From Our Brain Bites Committee April 23, 2019
A truly enlighting mini Brain Bites session took place on Tuesday 23rd of April at IC Ras Beirut with Prime Minister Mr Fouad Sanyoura. The session was split into 2 parts:
An introduction by PM Sanyoura then a Q&A session organized around 3 headings:
- The latest regional geopolitical developments (deal of the century; Arab spring resurrected, intensifying sanctions)
- Our economic, monetary and infrastructure worries (devaluation, rumours regarding bank deposit haircuts, destructive corruption in managing infrastructure files by the political class)
- Hope for a turnaround: what will it take? What can we each do to contribute?
The event was an exclusive ICAA member’s event and although scheduled for one hour and a half, the session extended to three hours.
