Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture, Tripoli, Lebanon | November 20, 2019
Part 2 of the Freedom Audit gathered 76 businesspeople, academics, and activists in a roundtable discussion to recommend ways to push Lebanon out of the current economic crisis. Mr. McMahon and Dr. Walker examined the country’s ranking on the Economic Freedom of the World Index published by the Fraser Institute. They explained that decision-makers should work on improving the rule of law and property rights (ranked 134), credit market regulations (133), business regulations (151) and freedom to trade internationally (104). 10 media outlets covered the event and shared the findings.
