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. 

“Live Love Lebanon” will be launched during the Dubai Universal Travel and Tourism Fair and will include different touristic programs for various Lebanese regions. 

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.”
