Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are looking to invest in up to 23 infrastructure projects in Lebanon, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al Hariri said on Friday.

“We will present to (Saudi and the UAE) the projects we have in Cedre because they want to contribute and invest. The relationship between us has returned to what it was before and may be better,” Hariri told reporters during a visit in Washington, according to a report by Reuters.

Up to 23 deals are currently being negotiated, the report added.

Last month, three former Lebanese premiers – Fouad Siniora, Najib Mikati and Tammam Salam – travelled to Riyadh to meet with Saudi officials in order to request financial assistance for the Arab country.

“We brought up the financial issue and that Saudi used to place deposits and invest in treasury bills in the past. We said this would seriously contribute to fortifying Lebanon financially,” Salam was quoted as saying by Bloomberg.

Lebanon is aiming to raise $11 billion in loans and grants in order to help restore its beleaguered economy.

Economic activity in the country hasn’t exceeded 1 percent over the last five years and is projected to be 1.2 percent in 2019, according to the finance ministry.

    Lebanon’s green turtles threatened by new resort

    “This is what I do; I make children happy. I make them aware that Lebanon is not only about garbage and no electricity. There is more to it than this. And now mothers call me every day and ask, ‘When? When? You said in August there is a release every day.’ And I tell them that it used to be that way. It’s not like that anymore.”

      Can one hope this is a sign of her actually going back there someday? Keeping my fingers crossed! 🙂

            “The American Dream is ugly and brutally and violent as the country
            was founded on, so you have to tolerant the pain, you have to make some sacrifices, you have to struggle,” Nohra said.

            Jersey Pump was relaunched in April, can be found in local Jersey gyms, and is theofficial drink of the New York Fight Exchange.

            For anyone looking to start a business, Nohra has some advice.

            “Never stop evolving, always read, always take time, invest time in yourself,” Nohra added, “Have a great partner. Be with someone who believes in you, be with someone who’s going to support you and who’s going to sacrifice with you.”
