The session will cover the government’s plan to develop the different enablers for digitization - from infrastructure and digital identity, to regulations and business incentives.
Meet and Discuss With Lebanon's Successful Diaspora
The LaunchPad Forum also explored how the diaspora can bring technology opportunities back to Lebanon. The event will gather some of the most inspirational Lebanese diaspora to talk about their journey working abroad, highlighting Lebanon’s advantages and opportunities as a regional tech hub, as well as discussing what it would take for the diaspora to establish offices in Lebanon and to create job opportunities.
