Kanaan meets World Bank delegation: Our main goal is to control deficit, exacerbated public debt

Head of the Finance and Budget Committee, MP Ibrahim Kanaan, met with a delegation of the World Bank with talks touching on the USD 2 billion 200 million allocated by the Bank to projects in Lebanon.

The delegation expressed readiness to invest an additional 4 billion dollars in the next four years and set priorities with the Lebanese State.

Kanaan stressed to the delegation "Lebanon's interest in its relationship with the World Bank and its appreciation of the course of this relationship, given the importance of the suggested projects."

"Our main goal is to control the deficit and the exacerbated public debt, and to focus on the return of displaced people to their country, given the heavy burden of displacement on Lebanon," he said.
