During the meeting, that was moderated by Association President Dr. Fouad Zmokhol, the participants discussed Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh’s proposal which provides for developing a plan and program of action to achieve self-sufficiency in Lebanon as an alternative to relying on foreign assistance, aid or donations and loans.
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh had stressed that the objective of his proposal is to establish a self-sufficient industrial country, considering that 95% of all imports to Lebanon could be produced internally.
