Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Ghassan Hasbani said Saturday that while the international support pledged at CEDRE presented an opportunity to implement new projects in Lebanon, the government shouldn't make any promises without thoroughly studying projects first.The pledges were aimed at helping Lebanon finance crucial infrastructure projects, but underlined the importance of fiscal and administrative reforms as a condition to attract these funds.After critics claimed the pledges risked increasing Lebanon's already bloated debt, Prime Minister Saad Hariri stressed that the country's Capital Investment Plan projects will be carried out with transparency.
