Tourism Minister Michel Pharaon informed a delegation of the Travel and Tourism Agencies Syndicate of a new plan set to begin next week to boost the number of visitors to Lebanon.
Pharaon said there was a decision to improve the security situation and distance the country from regional turmoil.
“The security situation in Lebanon, except at the border, is better that the situation in many [other] touristic cities,” he said.
“There are a lot of strong points that Lebanon has and we should focus on them and show them.”
