Nicosia, Sep 13 -- Cyprus will organize a World Congress and Exhibition on the Reconstruction and Development of postwar Lebanon in December.

Lebanese Ambassador to Cyprus Michel El Khouri told journalists that this event is jointly organized by the International Merchandising Centre, the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) and the World Trade Centres Association.

Mr. El Khouri said that "hosted buyers" from Lebanon will be invited to participate from both the public and the private sectors, such as Ministries, local authorities and the Central Bank, who are authorized to negotiate and conclude contractual agreements with solution providers.

CCCI General Secretary, Panagiotis Loizides said the Chamber intends to organize a visit to Lebanon, since Israel has lifted its air and sea blockade on Lebanon.
