Sept. 1 is a major cornerstone in Lebanon's history: It marks the inception of The State of Greater Lebanon.This year on Sept. 1, almost 100 years later, the National Initiative for the Centennial of Greater Lebanon organized a National Youth Conference under the slogan of "Lebanon's Sea to all Lebanon," under the patronage of Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri, with the participation of various local stakeholders.Youth from across Lebanon (both from coastal regions and inland) convened in Sidon to discuss a new phase for Lebanon's development, in light of the projects and donations pledged at the Conference Economique pour le Development par les Reformes avec les Entreprises, as well as the new oil and gas deposits discovered in Lebanon's waters.Afterward, MP Bahia Hariri, president of the National Initiative for the Centennial of Greater Lebanon and representative of prime minister Hariri, announced the maritime borders will be added to Lebanon's current territorial borders, increasing by 22,700 square kilometers Lebanon's territory in line with that of Greater Lebanon, an area of 33,152 square kilometers.
