Ri­fai, to Le­banon – the in­ter­na­tional tourism project “The Phoeni­cians' Route” was launched, con­nect­ing the Le­banese di­as­pora, which makes up 14 mil­lion Le­banese who live abroad, to their home coun­try. The cul­tural tourism pro­grams that make up the project will make the Phoeni­cians’ Route and the re­main­ing mon­u­ments of this an­cient civ­i­liza­tion, a glob­ally renowned touris­tic ex­pe­ri­ence, gen­er­ate nu­mer­ous jobs and cre­ate col­lab­o­ra­tive ties in tourism devel­op­ment be­tween the 18 coun­tries along the Phoeni­cians’ Route.
