A wonderful event hosted by LebNet with Telecom Minister from Lebanon, his excellency Mr. Nicolas Sehnaoui, and his team at the picturesque French Club in San Francisco. The audience enjoyed the gathering, the candid update by the Minister on the Telecom sector in Lebanon, and the exquisite dinner and wines offered by the club.
Minister Sehnaoui is visiting Silicon Valley to meet with Lebanese-American high tech professionals and leading US companies in order to explore ways of developing the proper infrastructure and ecosystem in Lebanon to trigger significant growth in the number of entrepreneurs and small-medium businesses in the country serving the MENA region.
