Mohammed Safadi, Lebanese economy and trade minister has said that at least $20bn needs to be spent to improve the country’s basic infrastructure if the country does not wish to see its high growth “dwindle and vanish,” Reuters has reported. “Today, our main problem against future growth is basically the infrastructure and if we do not sort out the infrastructure, this growth that we’re witnessing today is going to dwindle today and will vanish,” Safadi told the Reuters Middle East Investment Summit.
