NNA - House Speaker, Nabih Berri, welcomed this Monday at his Ain El Tineh residence a delegation of the Association of Lebanese Industrialists (ALI), led by Dr. Fady Gemayel.
Speaker Berri assured the delegation that the needed funds for the industrial sector to overcome the current crisis will be secured, adding that the government and the concerned Ministry are in the process of finding solutions in this regard.
He said that all of Lebanon's productive sectors are likely to be restructured in accordance with the challenges and requirements of the current stage, with the exception of the industrial and agricultural sectors.
"These are the only two sectors that must be protected while ensuring all means of survival and development for them since they are the main piers to rebuild a productive national economy," Berri said, adding "this can also create job opportunities for young Lebanese and reduce unemployment and immigration."
Berri also underlined that "the Lebanese industrialists are capable through their expertise and capacities, to significantly contribute to offering solutions to the electricity crisis in Lebanon."
