Lama Badreddine Salam reveals that the moment the government of her husband Prime Minister Tammam Salam won the vote of confidence in Parliament, she set herself a goal to make the Grand Serail a meeting point for all Lebanese.With the help of the Memac Oglivy team in Lebanon and her friend producer Josiane Boulos, Salam came up with the concept of "A Date at the Serail"; a weekly rendezvous held at the prime minister's headquarters in the Ottoman-era Grand Serail in Downtown Beirut. In fact, the graceful Salam is the first prime minister's wife to use the Grand Serail premises as a social hub where dialogue and interaction can abound.Salam, a francophone, admits that essentially, a Date at the Serail was an activity meant to spread over a limited number of weeks due to belief at the time that the government of Prime Minister Salam was to be short-lived in light of the current presidential election underway.Salam speaks of the common goals she and her husband share.
