Mount Lebanon summer resort project on track

June 6 - Dr. Mohammad Sadeqi met with Usta Aba Rjaili, who is head of the Bu Hamdoun Al-Mahatta Municipality, in Beirut to review the Mount Lebanon public service summer resort project. Dr. Sadeqi is resident representative of the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED). Heads of the municipalities of Shabania, Hammana, and Falugha attended the meeting. 

Participants were given a presentation of the project plan which is expected to be finalized in one year.  The project, which is estimated to cost USD 7 million, aims to consolidate public service of relevant areas including infrastructure, water, and electricity.  Sadeqi said during the meeting that “KFAED chose consultants who will prepare designs, bid documents, and supervise the project implementation.” He stressed that KFAED and other bodies need to work together to make the project a success and action plans must take into account congestion during the summer season.
