Lebanon - Q&A - From the press briefing (24 October 2019)

Q: Do you think that the initial announcements made by the Lebanese government in response to the protests are adequate?

A: Lebanon has been experiencing significant protest movements for a week now, reflecting the strong demands of all components of the Lebanese population.

The initial measures announced on October 21 should pave the way for expanded reforms, notably in order to increase transparency and contribute to economic recovery to the benefit of all Lebanese people.

We are committed, within the framework of the CEDRE conference, to a demanding approach aimed at supporting the swift implementation of the necessary structural reforms by the Lebanese government.
