Qartaba tourism carnival, government to settle 2018 entitlements of festivals


In a ceremony held at the ministry on July 31, the minister of tourism, Avedis Guidanian, launched the Qartaba Carnival for Tourism and Heritage. Guidanian revealed that the State Shura Council said it has sent to cabinet the decree related to 2018 financial contributions to local festivals. The Minister hoped it will be endorsed in the first cabinet session, expected to be held in the next few days, to kick off the compensation for the year 2018. Guidanian stressed that organizing festivals today requires determination and courage especially with the shrinking contributions to this end, combined with the gloomy atmosphere in the country. The minister boasted that he may be the only optimistic official to stimulate positivity through declaring the constant improvement in the number of incomers to Lebanon, despite the never-ending crises. For his part, the head of the Federation of Jbeil Municipalities, mayor of Qartaba, Fadi Martinos, stressed the persistence of the successes of the festival year after year, notwithstanding the financial and economic drawbacks. Similarly, the president of the Qartaba Festivals Committee, Michel Darazi, announced the dates of the musical evenings and names of performing singers. (An Nahar, August 5, 2019)
