Some may wonder why the Banque du Liban operates a vital facility such as Middle East Airlines. The reason for this was the bankruptcy of Intra Bank in the 1960s, which made the central bank the owner of the airline since then.

Our journey towards making visa processing more agile and efficient is very much about the ongoing digital transformation that is impacting all industries. This positive development, among other things, cannot be realistically achieved without relying on the collection and processing of data to create knowledge, competencies and capabilities. This collection and processing requires a governance oversight to ensure that it’s not used to the detriment of the individual. To this end we have seen an upsurge in data protection legislation in the last few years.
The education industry has undergone a technological revolution over the past decade, but there’s still one major shift on the horizon that brings together many of the technologies that have been pegged as revolutionary (augmented reality for example) – in fact it is essential for their success in the education sector.
