Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri received today at the Center House the Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg and the accompanying delegation, in the presence of Minister Ghattas Khoury and his advisor Nadim Mounla.
Hariri held a lunch in honor of the Grand Duchess and the delegation, during which talks continued.
It is worth noting that the trip of the Grand Duchess to Lebanon intervenes in the framework of the forum "Stand Speak Rise Up to end sexual violence in fragile environments" that she is organizing in Luxembourg in March 2019.
As President of her Foundation, Goodwill Ambassador of Unesco and Eminent Advocate for Unicef, she will visit survivors of sexual violence, especially among the displaced, to gather their testimonies and support them in their quest for justice and reparation. She will also learn about microfinance projects to improve the situation of the displaced, and about NGOs she intends to support in the future through her foundation.
Hariri also met with a delegation from the World Bank, headed by the Mashreq Regional Director Saroj Kumar Jha and the Senior Director for Energy and Extractives Global Practice Riccardo Puliti. Talks focused on projects related to CEDRE conference.
