Community/Lebanon Impact

It is little things that make an impact, just like a drop of water that goes unnoticed and breaks rocks. Being a public servant, I always look for Lebanon’s public interest and the influence we can exert with the power invested in us. I have contributed to building Lebanon's national telecommunication infrastructure that supports Lebanon’s Mobile fixed and data service providers and digital economy in general. I was an expert with the Bassel Fuleihan Institute of Finance participating in Lebanon's Methodology for Assessing Procurement System MAPS, leading to the issuance of the new public procurement law 244/2021. I have trained public servants and private companies on public procurement and its various methods, contract management, PPP, cost modeling,  and other ICT related subjects. I have written guidelines to help implement the new procurement law. Finally, I am a Gender focal point supporting gender equity and mainstreaming.
