In his delivered a speech at the first session of the Conference under the headline, "A new growth model for recovery after COVID-19 governs tomorrow's investments in the Middle East and North Africa Region", Nehme highlighted the importance of structural reforms in light of the financial, economic and social crises impacting the economy, especially with the deterioration of growth and high rates of unemployment and poverty.
