‘Favorite village’ in its fourth edition

11-7-2019

During a ceremony held at AUB yesterday, the 4th edition of the ‘Favorite Village’ competition, sponsored by L’Orient Le Jour daily in cooperation with Fransabank, was launched. The participating villages are: Amshit, Baruk, Bsherri, Qana, Habariyeh, Ghazir, Baskinta, Hermel, Mashghara and Qobayat. An outline was presented about the features of each competing village, including traditional dishes, crafts, religious sites, nature, heritage and agriculture. Former tourism minister, Michel Pharaon, who was present at the launch, stressed that rural tourism bolsters and props up internal tourism. For his part, AUB President, Fadlo Khury, addressed the issue of migration, criticizing the slackness of the government towards rural and agricultural areas and reminded it of its responsibility towards the youth in order to stay steadfast in their villages. Voting online for only one of the ten participating villages will start on July 10 and will close on July 28 ( lorientlejour.com/village). (L’Orient Le Jour, July 11, 2019)
