First Greek promotional festival in Byblos

10-6-2019

The minister of tourism, Avedis Guidanian, inaugurated the first edition of the Greek Festival at the historic Romanian Street in Jbeil, Byblos, June 7-10, in the presence of the Greek Ambassador to Lebanon, Francescos Verros, representing the Greek President, as well as the ambassador of Cyprus and Armenia. The director of the festival, Joseph Eid, underlined the cultural and touristic significance of the event. Likewise, Verros said the festival not only promotes Greek culture, food and wine in Lebanon, but it also strengthens tourism and cultural exchange between the two peoples of the Mediterranean countries. Guidanian, for his part, said the above initiative is a cornerstone for the already existing Lebanese-Greek relations, hoping the event will become an annual tradition. Recalling, the festival included 27 pavilions showcasing traditional Greek goods and folk music and dancing. (Al Diyar, June 9, 2019)
