Dr. Nasser Saidi participated as a panelist in the session titled “Lebanon’s Financial Meltdown and the Prospects for Recovery” held online on 25th March 2021.
Where does Lebanon stand today, a year after the first sovereign debt default in its history? How did we even get here? What are immediate monetary and fiscal policy priorities to course-correct? What social policies and programs are needed in the immediate term? What can still be saved? Panelists, including Dr. Saidi, tackled these issues and shed more light on Lebanon’s uncertain financial, economic, and social future as part of the Middle East Institute’s (MEI) Lebanon program’s events series.
