During his honoring by the Lebanese Economic Bodies, Choucair said: “the increase in taxes in such economical situations will only result in a loss: loss of jobs, closing institutions, a decline in growth rates, decline in internal and external investments, and escape of the local companies to the outside.
Choucair stated that his goal is to “create an atmosphere conducive to business and investment and to increase the competitiveness of our national economy, pointing out that this is the key to the real solution to our various economic, financial, and social problems”.
Minister Mohamed Choucair is one of the new 30-member government that took office at the end of January 2019.
