Muscat: Bank of Beirut celebrated the Lebanese Week at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Center in Muscat from October 21 to 23.
The event was specifically aimed at connecting businesses from Oman and Lebanon in order to improve the overall economic ties between both countries. The event directly correlates with the position of Bank of Beirut being ‘Banking beyond borders’
“Bank of Beirut initiates and supports such events in line with our responsibility towards playing a strategic role in strengthening business and social relationships between Lebanon and the Sultanate. We aim to continue pursuing this strategy into the future for growth, and prosperity for the two countries,” said Ramy Zambarakji, chief executive officer of the bank in Oman.
More than 85 companies participated in the exhibition from Lebanon, from a diverse range of business sectors, such as industry, services, tourism, Lebanese cuisine, real estate and investments.
