After more than two years of uncertainty, there is good news in Lebanon: The country has a new president, a national unity government and there's hope for a better political environment to address long-standing issues.Lebanon has long shown resilience to diverse shocks, and its dynamic financial sector has been a source of economic stability in good times and bad. Right now, chronic joblessness and poor infrastructure stand in the way, tempting many of Lebanon's best and brightest to take their talents elsewhere.Confronting those challenges through a host of economic reforms and investment will help Lebanon catch up with its emerging market peers and pave the way for the private sector to contribute to inclusive growth and job creation.Lebanon's financial sector, which has been seen as a safe haven, must move to the next generation of reforms.
