GLC head, after Mikati visit, demands a tax-friendly 2024 budget

On Thursday, Shadi Al-Asmar, the leader of the Federation of Trade Unions and Employees in North Lebanon, led a delegation that was received by acting Prime Minister Najib Mikati in the presence of General Labor Confederation head Bishara Al-Asmar.

“People could no longer bear the increasing financial burdens, so we’ve demanded that the 2024 state budget proposed today at the House of Parliament be considerate in terms of taxes and fees,” the head of GLC stated during his appearance.

A representative of the General Directorate of Protocol at the Council of Ministers, Nabil Shadid, the Director General of Protocol at the Presidency of the Republic, and Ali Hamad, the Director General of Protocol at the House of Parliament, met separately with the Prime Minister.
