Dr. Nasser Saidi appeared on BBC World Business report on 31st Aug 2023 to discuss the departure of the discredited central bank governor, Riad Salameh, and the next steps for the Banque du Liban and the nation.

Lebanon’s economic and political paralysis entered a new phase at end-July with the departure of the discredited central bank governor, Riad Salameh. For most of his thirty-year tenure he was celebrated as a financial genius, but he is now widely blamed for Lebanon’s almost complete economic collapse since 2019.
