Le­banon to Host 2019 Arab Eco­nomic, So­cial De­vel­op­ment Sum­mit


BEIRUT (Dis­patches) - Le­banon will host the 2019 Arab Eco­nomic and So­cial De­vel­op­ment sum­mit, the state-run Na­tional News Agency re­ported Sun­day.

The AESD was formed as an ex­clu­sively eco­nomic and de­vel­op­men­tal con­fer­ence that tends to in­volve the pri­vate sec­tor, in­clud­ing banks, cham­bers of com­merce, in­dus­try and agri­cul­ture.

News agen­cies had pre­vi­ously re­ported that Le­banon would host the 30th edi­tion of the Arab League sum­mit in 2019, but NNA clar­i­fied that the coun­try will in­stead host the 4th AESD sum­mit.

Le­banon’s pres­i­dent and prime min­is­ter mean­while ar­rived in Saudi Ara­bia to par­tic­i­pate in the 29th edi­tion of the Arab League sum­mit on Sun­day.
