The Arab Economic Forum 2022 will be held on 22 December 2022 under the patronage of H.E. Najib Mikati, President of the Council of Ministers of Lebanon, at the Phoenicia Intercontinental Hotel in Beirut.
AEF 2022 will be organized by Al-Iktissad Wal-Aamal Group, Lebanese Economic organizations, Union of Arab Chambers and the Investment Development Authority of Lebanon (IDAL) in cooperation with the League of Arab States.
The Forum will come on the heels of the maritime border demarcation agreement signed lately and which expected to reinforce stability on the borders and pave the way for Lebanon to launch the process of exploration and production in its offshore oil and gas blocks.
The new agreement is expected to help in mobilizing the investments needed to fund the exploration, production and marketing phases as well as to build the oil and gas national supply chain and put in place needed governance to safeguard expected revenues from exports and provide badly needed resources to implement necessary economic, fiscal, monetary and banking reforms that will enhance the potential of a sustainable recovery from current economic stagflation.
AEF 2022 will bring together a large number of high-level participants including ministers, business leaders and investors from Lebanon and many other countries in addition to a large participation of Lebanese expatriates from around the world.
