NNA - Vice Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture of Beirut and Mount Lebanon, Nabil Fahed, on Thursday received at the Chamber's headquarters the British Ambassador to Lebanon, Chris Rampling, accompanied by the Embassy's Trade Attaché and a number of advisors.
Discussions reportedly touched on the economic relations between the two countries, in light of the UK's exit from the European Union.
Welcoming Rampling at the Chamber, Fahed stressed the interest of the private sector in Lebanon to increase the level of economic cooperation with Britain.
Fahed underlined the need to increase communication between the private sectors of both countries to identify available opportunities, proposing the establishment of a British-Lebanese business council whose main task would be to develop a roadmap for bilateral economic relations.
Ambassador Rampling expressed his Country's interest in signing economic and trade agreements with Lebanon after its exit from the European Union, to establish legal frameworks for this activity between the two countries.
