BEIRUT: Tourism Minister Michel Pharaoun informed a delegation of the Travel and Tourism Agencies Syndicate of a new plan set to begin next week to boost the number of visitors to Lebanon.

“Live Love Lebanon” will be launched during the Dubai Universal Travel and Tourism Fair, and will include different touristic programs for various Lebanese regions.

Pharaoun said that there was a decision to improve the security situation in Lebanon and distance the country from the regional turmoil, something that would reflect positively on the tourism industry.

“The security situation in Lebanon, except at the border, is better that the situation in many [other] touristic cities,” he said. “There are a lot of strong points that Lebanon has and we should focus on them and show them.”

He said the decline in tourism in Lebanon was not due to the ministry's management but to the crisis the country is suffering from.
