The mere fact that Lebanon has managed to gather 50 different parties, including major states and international organizations, at the CEDRE conference in Paris is no small feat.The Lebanese must abandon the old ways of doing things, embarking on a new path that embraces reforms, eschewing all that is dubious and obscure, completely eradicating corruption and reining in unfettered expenditures.Unlike the Lebanese populace, which has looked on helplessly as endless promises of change have amounted to little, the international community is not one to suffer deception, and unless it observes irrefutable sincerity and tangible reform in every aspect of governance, it will refrain from risking any investments in a country that can't respect itself.
