MAPNA Investment Projects CEO, Khalil Behbahani also welcomed participation in Lebanon’s power projects. Referring to the country’s potential for investment, Behbahani added that MAPNA is ready to cooperate not only as IPP (independent power producer), but also service provider for Lebanon’s power sector.
Advisor to Lebanon’s Minister of Economy and Trade Zaher Azoury also expressed interest in using MAPNA’s knowhow and successful experiences in the power industry. “Lebanon has plans to pave the ground for international participation in power sector” Azoury said.
