إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

President Michel Aoun stressed during talks with a Canadian delegation on Monday the need to facilitate the promotion and marketing of Lebanese products worldwide, the National News Agency reported on Monday.

Aoun told the delegation that the new air route between Beirut and Madrid will help increase traffic between Lebanese residents and those living abroad.

A report published in 2017 said that Lebanon was the 72nd largest market for U.S. exports in 2016, according to U.S. Department of Commerce statistics. The Lebanese Customs Authority reported that Lebanon’s total imports in 2016 reached USD 18.705 billion, of which USD 1.184 billion came from the United States.

In 2016, the United States ranked as Lebanon’s third largest trading partner behind China and Italy.

Lebanese corruption is already super notorious abroad. A black NY taxi driver knows that Israel is our neighbor in the middle East but can't locate the middle East on the map lol

And what product is he thinking of promoting now? the Beeka3s finest? or maybe the few bottles of Gin produced in Lebanon?. We do have the Monot Franchises that could be catching (no punt intended). How about our woods, or maybe Chemicals industry? hold on we dont have any of electricity and environment is shot...
The perfect product that Lebanon can produce is the waste that the people generate and the government has no clue to resolve.

How about aoun promotes freedom of speech and stop arresting citizens who has had enough of corruption!

أطلقت مجموعة من الناشطين على وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي دعوة عامة الى اعتصام سلمي في حديقة سمير قصير في وسط بيروت، الساعة السابعة مساء الثلثاء المقبل، احتجاجًا على توالي الاعتقالات والتوقيفات لناشطين على خلفية كتابات او منشورات على صفحات التواصل الاجتماعي، تتعلق بآرائهم ومواقفهم من الطبقة السياسية الحاكمة.

جاءت الدعوة بعدما استدعى مكتب مكافحة جرائم المعلوماتية الناشط إيلي الخوري للتحقيق معه على خلفية منشور على صفحته على موقع التواصل الاجتماعي فايسبوك توجه فيه إلى رئيس الجمهورية ميشال عون.

وكتيب إيلي الخوري:

“فخامة الرئيس الإصلاح يبدأ من رأس الهرم وليس من أسفله !!
الشعب يا فخامة الرئيس يدفع :
1- فاتورة الكهرباء * 2
2- فاتورة المياه * 2
3- أغلى فاتورة هاتف وإنترنت في العالم ويحصل على أسوأ خدمة!!
4- أغلى تنكة بنزين في العالم !!
5- كل معاشه ثمن بنزين بسبب زحمة السير وسوء حالة الطرقات !!

الشعب يا فخامة الرئيس لم يعد بإمكانه تعليم أولاده في عهدك !!
الشعب يا فخامة الرئيس لم يعد بإمكانه شراء شقة على الإسكان في عهدك !!
الشعب يا فخامة الرئيس بحاجة إلى رئيس يحب بلده وشعبه أكثر من حبه لأبنائه واصهرته!!

الشعب يا فخامة الرئيس بحاجة لرئيس يعفي أصحاب الدخل المحدود من الضرائب ويخفض معاشات الرؤساء والوزراء والنواب ويلغي التعويضات الضخمة التي يتلقاها المسؤلين وأولادهم !!

الشعب يا فخامة الرئيس بدو سياحة وسواح !! يلي محرومين منهم بسبب سياسات الدولة الخاطئة وانضمامها إلى محاور لا تخدم السياحة .

الشعب بدو يطلع النفط من البحر قبل ما يصير الدين أغلى من سعر النفط !!

للأسف يا فخامة الرئيس لم تكن على قدر الأمال لأنك حولت الدولة إلى بيت للعائلة وكيف لك ان تحاسب الفاسدين من عائلتك !!”.

Never has Lebanon known or seen a president who promotes Lebanese products like this one, ever!

This guy is too funny. Does he even realize that with the pollution that the country is generating eventually it will be found in the products they are currently producing and exporting, such as the pickles, olives and other things. I for one stopped buying Lebanese made products as I know they will be proven to cause cancer sooner or later...

The pollution in the country is and will impact the quality of the food Lebanon is exporting. Very soon studies will be carried out on the products and it will reveal the impact the product is causing in particularity the cancer it causes. I for one stopped purchasing Lebanese made products as I know all the garbage, and raw sewage that is sipping into the ground ends up in the food. Lebanon as a whole needs to understand this and fix the problem before it gets way out of control

Japan already banned the import of many Lebanese products such as pistachio nuts and others because they contain cancerous material.

You can almost pick these mafias on their next comic statments..

Days earlier, Billionair Berri calls for legalising marajuana.. for medicinal purposes.. yeah right

Today our MujnAoun calls for supporting Lebanese products (probably worked, manufactured by Syrians and Palestinians anyway)...

Other than fake products, these mafias have killed anything called Lebanese
