The opening address was delivered by Fadi Saab, LABN's coordinator and LTA's vice chairman, who said that the workshop was part of an action plan that was launched two years ago by the LTA.
Addressing audience members, Omar Kabboul, the LTA's communications coordinator, outlined the preliminary vision of LABN's media strategy.
Kabboul said that LABN regularly distributed periodicals and briefs to printed media outlets, and added that a number of the networks' officials had taken part in several television and radio interviews.
Finally, the LABN official underlined the need of a "legal framework enabling us of identifying corrupt acts and hold corrupt people accountable," adding that LTA was working on a project to combat corruption.
The event that saw the announcement of the recommendations to reform the taxation system along with the real state and electricity sectors, was held in cooperation with LABN and the Center for International Private Enterprise "CIPE."
At the end of the conference, the LABN issued a handbook called, "What Should You Know About Your Rights when you [your company] is Subject to Audit?"
