President Macron visits Lebanon

It has been less than a month since President Macron last visited Lebanon. This past week, he travelled to Lebanon once again to meet with representatives of the Lebanese political factions. The aim of the trip was to persuade these representatives to change the current political and economic system by supporting a revision of the government and putting in place initiatives to fight corruption. President Macron warned that unless these changes are put in place, sanctions against the personal wealth of the political elite would be put in place.

Hi everyone! My name is Lilly and I am a high school student based in Germany, where I am currently enrolled in the IB diploma programme. Aside from founding EconIR WEB, I am also the President of JEC Berlin. Being a student who has a deep interest and passion for economics and international relations myself, I know how challenging it can be to find ways to engage with your areas of interest. Therefore, I created EconIR WEB. I hope that through EconIR WEB we will be able to build a strong community of students who share the same passion. Cant wait for you to join!
