CABC hosted Lebanon in its first virtual event, Lebanon ICT Business Forum 2023 to North America which was held on the 7th February from 10 am – 12 pm ET. This event was supported by USAID’s Trade and Investment Facilitation (TIF) project, Quality For Development (QFD) and Daimlas.
Lebanon has strong commercial and humanitarian ties with North America. In particular, Canada’s bilateral trade with Lebanon increased in recent years despite Lebanon’s economic challenges. Two-way merchandise trade between Canada and Lebanon grew to $160 million in 2021 (up 60% from 2013) with key sectors including information and communication technologies, agriculture/agri-food products, education, and life sciences.
The Forum included a virtual exhibition as a component to encourage commercial exchanges between businesses in Lebanon and North America. This presented a unique opportunity for companies to network with the top 15 Lebanese ICT exhibitors showcasing cutting edge solutions at their virtual stands.
Listen to the webinar recording which has exclusive presentations from senior diplomatic representatives in Lebanon, Canada and the US as well as panel discussion from industry champions on collaborative initiatives for businesses in Lebanon and North America.
