as many of you remember, each year EU lebanon organise the cooperation days,
and this year the event seems very very exciting ;
here is how the EU introduces the days on the Facebook page:
The European Union (EU) as a whole is one of the main donors to Lebanon. The EU allocates about 220 million euro annually in assistance to Lebanon (50 million from the European Commission, 50 million from the EU Member States and 120 million in loans from the European Inv…estment bank). While most Lebanese are aware that the EU is a large donor, many are not aware of the programmes that the European Commission or EU Member States are funding in Lebanon. The EU – Lebanon Cooperation Days aim to reach the general public in a direct way. It is the sole event whereby the projects of the EU Delegation and the EU Member States are displayed jointly. The overall objectives of this event is: • Showcase projects and activities benefitting from the EU financial assistance • Explain the various funding opportunities offered by the EU to different partners (direct beneficiaries, organizations, companies, & students). • Generate discussion on the reform agenda in Lebanon.
