BEIRUT: Prime Minister Tammam Salam Wednesday urged workers to support “revival and reforms” to energize Lebanon’s economy.

“I call on Lebanon’s workers ... to contribute to a much-needed revival and serious reforms in all sectors to rescue the economy, which is on a downward trend,” Salam said in a statement issued in honor of Labor Day, which falls Thursday.

In a statement, Salam said such a move would put Lebanon back on the global economic map “in a world of fierce competition.”

Salam also hailed Lebanon’s female workers “who are struggling for existence and for equal rights.”
