Investment in the regional tourism industry

The investment projects in progress in the hotel and tourist sector would reach 710 million dollars, that is to say 25 % of the total of the investments undertaken since 1992 in these sectors. These figures were advanced by the vice-president of Idal, Alain Bejjani who underlines the renewal of investors' interest in Lebanon.

He says the government gave the green light to the construction of the Congress palace, trustful in conference tourism future.
Mr. Bejjani in addition reveals the project of tourism of health worked out by Idal, in co-operation with the ministry for Health. "It does not have tourism of health without hotel establishments.

Tourism of health attracts not only the patients but also their nearest relatives ", he said referring to the significant number of Arabs who goes to East Europe to follow medical cures or to undergo surgical operations.
Mr. Bejjani made these remarks during a debate organized within the framework of Horeca, the international hotel industry show. Nada Sardouk director of the ministry for Tourism, and Pierre Achkar, president of the hotel owners trade union, have, on their side, insisted on the need of a co-operation between the private and public sectors. In fact, the design of the tourist product changed.

According to Mr. Achkar reporting the statistics of the Bank of Lebanon, the amount of the investments is three billion dollars. "The Lebanese hotel sector only develops without the help of the public authorities and faced a serious competition from Dubaï,Egypt and even from Turkey. It has to deal with Israeli aggressions. Tourism develops only in an environment of stability and peace ".

The president of the hotel owners trade union affirms being convinced of the need for developing panarab tourism , Lebanon, Jordan and Syria being neighbours with an enemy which despoiled them their rights. During long years, the Israeli aggressions against Lebanon resulted in poor summer seasons. However, the Arab tourist used to new remote destinations and to invest in it.

Sélim el-Zir, founder of the Arab company of management Rotana, opted for the development of regional trust companies. Considering the more restricted number of establishments they manages, these companies are more concerned than the large international chains to preserve the interests of the hotel owners and closer to the customer requirements.
