Webinar – Lebanon : Public Procurement Law: What are the challenges for implementation and needed reforms?
November 9, 2021
Lebanon’s disintegrated and obsolete public procurement system has increased corruption over the years decreasing efficiency levels. This has contributed to ranking Lebanon’s public procurement system below average internationally, which reflects negatively on its level of competitiveness and ability to conduct business.
In response to this challenge and amid the country’s economic collapse, the Lebanese Parliament adopted on June 30, 2021, the Public Procurement Law no. 244/2021. This law is an important step in fighting corruption and towards implementing the needed reforms to the public sector based on international standards.
Euromesco, IEMed, the EU delegation to Lebanon and the AUB are organising a webinar on this matter. A prestigious lineup of speakers will present the role of the law in fighting corruption and the challenges it faces in the political context, as well as the steps needed to ensure proper implementation.
