Mikati inaugurates Beirut’s Arab Book Fair

Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, on Thursday stressed that “challenges do not intimidate us, but render us more determined to confront and resolve difficulties,” stressing that “it is not new for Beirut to embrace the Arab book, as it was and still remains the capital of Arab culture.”

Premier Mikati on Thursday inaugurated the 63rd Beirut’s International Arab Book Fair, at the “Sea Side Arena” Exhibition Hall, Beirut Waterfront, at the invitation of the Arab Cultural Club, with the participation of a large number of publishing houses.

The opening ceremony was attended by former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, MP Mohammed Al-Hajjar, representing former Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, and scores of diplomatic, religious, academic, educational and union dignitaries, and a number of owners of Lebanese, Arab and foreign publishing houses.
