In a development that underscores France’s commitment towards rebuilding Lebanon, Organized by Business France, a French national agency entered into a collaboration with Mouvement des Entreprises et Représentations Economiques Françaises au Liban (MEREF) so as to create a French Pavilion which will act as a vehicle to introduce 18 companies at Project Lebanon, which takes place from June 26 to June 29, this year.

For more than a decade, France has consistently made a strong representation in the fair which showcases its strong long-term commitments to Lebanon and reinforces the strategic importance of the annual event.

“We are very delighted to once again debut France’s premium products and technologies at the French Pavilion during Project Lebanon. We have long supported the progress of the rebuilding and construction of Lebanon and we’ll continue to cross share innovations through this essential event. We have brought together 18 leading French companies to the pavilion and look forward to exchanging ideas and future business together,” said Marie Maamarie, head of Business France in Lebanon in reference to French efforts at rebuilding Lebanon.

The French Pavilion will host a number of companies showcasing their latest technologies and products in the construction and engineering sector. The sectors that the products of the French companies cover include energy management, building engineering, building materials, public works, studies and monitoring, stretch ceilings, LED lighting products, cable laying and wiring, home automation products, automation of building openings and closures, insurance services and banking.

Running for the last 23 years, Project Lebanon, is an International Trade Exhibition aimed at rebuilding Lebanon and the Middle East with modern construction materials and equipment and is the premier event of its kind in the region.

Industry leaders across the world congregate to Lebanon for this premier event.

In its 2017 edition, the fair included 313 exhibitors from 23 countries who showcased their latest products and services to 17,639 unique visitors. 2018 is likely to see an even greater number of exhibitors and unique visitors.

In efforts aimed at rebuilding Lebanon and the Middle East, the French representation at the fair, one of its key partners, is set to meet with their Lebanese counterparts and potential client to exchange ideas and build lasting and fruitful business relations.
