Le Maillon, Beirut, Lebanon | June 20, 2019
The Association of Lebanese Business-people in the World gathered 40 local entrepreneur and opinion leaders with the American Task Force for Lebanon, to discuss the barriers holding Lebanese prosperity and their vision for the country. In this context, LIMS director, Ms. Kristelle Mardini explained how LIMS sees the electricity sector divided into three:
production, distribution and transmission. She focused on production, where she stressed about the transparency of next step to ensure better and cheaper power. After the government adopted the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) format, the focus should be on going through the tenders committee to choose the best producer with the lowest prices. She also added that tender should focus on long-term solution and give bidders enough time to build factories instead of rushing to an expensive solution.
