Arabian Business English - - SPOTLIGHT -

RO­MA­NIA’S AM­BAS­SADOR TO Le­banon, Vic­tor Mircea, said last Tues­day that Le­banon must form a com­mit­tee to fight cor­rup­tion sim­i­lar to that of Ro­ma­nia, lo­cal me­dia re­ported.

“Le­banon should look into Ro­ma­nia’s ex­per­tise in fight­ing cor­rup­tion since

2005 with the cre­ation of a spe­cialised com­mit­tee for that pur­pose,” Mircea was quoted by the Na­tional News Agency (NNA) as say­ing.

Mircea’s com­ments came dur­ing his meet­ing with Le­banon’s state min­is­ter for com­bat­ing cor­rup­tion, Ni­co­las Tueni.

Mircea dis­cussed with Tueni the pos­si­bil­ity of sign­ing an agree­ment be­tween the two coun­tries to co­op­er­ate on fight­ing against cor­rup­tion.

“The two also agreed on ex­chang­ing ex­per­tise in this field,” ac­cord­ing to NNA.

Mircea said that Ro­ma­nia and Le­banon have a long, friendly and his­toric re­la­tions es­pe­cially that a big num­ber of Le­banese busi­ness­men work in Ro­ma­nia.

The Ro­ma­nian Em­bassy in Le­banon is keen to iden­tify and bring to fruition the op­por­tu­ni­ties for eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion and the pro­mo­tion of mu­tual knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing be­tween the two coun­tries.
