Abi Khalil Says Govt Incurred Huge 'Losses' because of Mistaken Decisions
Energy Minister Cesar Abi Khalil presented at a press conference on Friday the technical terms of conditions for the project of importing liquefied natural gas to Lebanon.
Abi Khalil said the plan to import LNG vessels to Lebanon “has been delayed since 2010, resulting in government losses of around $27 billion due to the “agendas” of some, and previous mistaken decisions.”
He added saying that “96 companies have withdrawn the books of conditions, while 13 international coalitions have qualified to bid.”
He concluded saying: “We bear the project to build the State and implement the law.”
