THE BUSINESS YEAR talks to RiadToufic Salamé, Governor of Banque du Liban
"The regional situation is not encouraging for investment or consumption. Lebanon is in the midst of the Middle East, and whatever is happening around us has an influence on the behavior of people in our country. The major challenge that we had to encounter, and we succeeded in doing so, was to maintain confidence in our banking sector, and our currency. That confidence has helped the country to once again preserve stability."
