At the opening of the fourth session of the Arab Development Summit .. Aoun: to adopt the strategy of reconstruction for development and call on Arab institutions and funds to meet in Beirut

At the opening of the fourth session of the Arab Development Summit .. Aoun: to adopt the strategy of reconstruction for development and call on Arab institutions and funds to meet in Beirut




21/01/2019















The President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, said that "Lebanon has paid dearly for war and terrorism, and for years has borne the brunt of regional and international burdens to displace the Syrian brothers, in addition to the 70-year-old Palestinian brothers. In addition to the "Israeli occupation, which has been waiting for us for seven decades in its aggression and occupation of the Palestinian and Arab territories and its disregard for international resolutions. Today, Quds and declaring it the capital of Israel and the adoption of the law «Jewish nationalism of the State of Israel». He considered at the same time «the most dangerous of all this is the case of internal stumbling and dispersion experienced by the Arab world».
The positions of the President of the Republic and his initiative came during the speech he gave on behalf of Lebanon, opening the fourth session of the Arab Economic and Social Development Summit, which was held in Beirut after Lebanon received its presidency from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 
President Aoun's Speech 
Welcome to Beirut Welcome to Beirut, Umm Al-Sharaa and Mehdi. 
Welcome guests in your country and dear brothers, who are meeting at this summit to meet the economic and development challenges facing our countries. The success of our efforts will meet the aspirations of our peoples and the hopes of generations and take a step towards prosperity and prosperity. And to promote joint Arab development work. I would like to thank His Majesty King Salman bin Abdulaziz for his presidency of the previous session of the Summit. 
Dear brothers
We have 
not been here today to discuss the causes, causes and instigators of wars, but to address their devastating consequences for the economy and growth in the region. Our countries, which have taken us back,
The internal wars, the spread of terrorism and extremism, and the emergence of waves of displacement and asylum, which the world has not seen since the end of the Second World War, have adversely affected the development process which is making its way hard in the region, especially in some countries that suffer mainly from economic and social problems. And will continue to have repercussions and repercussions on them for many years, which will inevitably impede the implementation of any economic and social calendar to achieve the goals of sustainable development, and make them lag behind the rest of the world.
Where are our countries from the march to achieving the global goals of sustainable development, from the eradication of extreme poverty to the fight against inequality and injustice or the reform of climate change at the time of the destruction of houses on their heads and the most basic rights of peoples to freedom and dignified life? And millions of people are leaving their homelands to other countries that are already under their burdens and narrowing their populations? 
I speak from Al-Aref's website, because Lebanon has paid dearly for war and terrorism, and for years has borne the brunt of the regional and international burdens of the displacement of the Syrian brethren, in addition to the 70-year-old brotherhood of the Palestinian brothers. Narrow infrastructure, inadequate infrastructure, limited resources and an overburdened labor market.
On the other hand, there is the Israeli occupation, which has persisted for seven decades in its aggression and occupation of the Palestinian and Arab territories and its disregard for international resolutions. Today, it reached the height of its aggression by Judaizing Jerusalem, declaring it the capital of Israel and adopting the "Jewish Nationalism of the State of Israel" , With the result of striking the Palestinian identity and trying to topple Resolution 194 and the right of return. In addition to this, the Israeli threats, the continuous pressure on Lebanon, the permanent violations of Resolution 1701, and the Lebanese sovereignty, land, sea and air. 
But more dangerous than all this is the state of internal stumbling and dispersion experienced by the Arab world, and it is known that «every kingdom divided on itself is ruined, and every house divided on itself does not prove». 
This devastation touches the pillars of our countries, foremost of which is economy, prosperity and development. 
Says Adibna and our great thinker Gibran Khalil Gibran

Our nation is a productive nation that is" weaving, growing, straining "and achieving its food security. It faces many challenges. The first challenge today is to make all the painful events that have afflicted us. A catalyst for working together to get out of the vicious circle of wars and their aftermath, to advance the march towards a better future for our peoples. We are an example in Europe that knows how to heal the wounds of its wars and reached peace through economic and social prosperity. 
Our Summit takes place after a period of several years in which the world witnessed the historic decision of the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, under No. 70/1, in which it endorsed the 1730 Sustainable Development Plan for 2030.
"This plan represents a program of action for people, the planet and for prosperity. It is also aimed at promoting world peace in a larger atmosphere of freedom. " 
From here, we chose the Arab Development Summit: prosperity is a factor of peace. 
Achieving prosperity is a daunting task but not impossible. 
Addressing the root causes of crises and seeking to eradicate poverty, which generates inequality, war and terrorism, must be a priority. Fighting corruption, carrying out the necessary reforms at all levels, ensuring the stability of legislation and fairness of the judiciary to provide the confidence factor for domestic and foreign investments. We also have to coordinate Arab programs and plans before the United Nations Summit on Sustainable Development in New York on September 25, in the presence of world leaders.
We hope that this summit will contribute to activating the activity of the outstanding projects, and work to complete them and achieve them in the interest of all our peoples. Where are we today from the common Arab market, and the measures that help in the discharge of agricultural production while respecting agricultural calendars and reciprocity that allow Arab integration? Where are the major projects such as interconnection projects between the Arab countries, including the electricity link, as well as the Greater Arab Free Trade Area, and increasing the rate of intra-direct investment in the Arab countries? Is not it time to facilitate the exchange of land through the border points and the opening of the crossings that allow the passage of goods between our countries? And where are we from correcting the course of the Arab facilitation agreement to become more just and comprehensive?
We also hope that the development summit will witness useful modern projects for the Arab world, and Lebanon will present a project on the digital economy in view of the importance of technological and information developments and the consequent changes that can not be overlooked, such as electronic commerce and digital government. 
Lebanon calls on the international community to exert all possible efforts and to provide the necessary conditions for the safe return of displaced Syrians to their country, especially to stable, accessible or low-tension areas, without being linked to a political solution. Provide incentives for return in order to contribute to the reconstruction and stability of their country. 
We have worked on a draft final communiqué issued by the Summit on the crisis of displaced persons and refugees in view of the repercussions of this serious crisis on the economies of our countries and, furthermore, the existential risks to the social fabric of the region.
In light of the great challenges and the major tasks facing us after the wars and crises in many Arab countries have intensified, I present my initiative to adopt the strategy of reconstruction for development, calling for the establishment of effective mechanisms in line with these challenges and the reconstruction requirements, foremost of which is the establishment of an Arab Bank for Reconstruction Development assists all affected Arab States and peoples in overcoming their plight and contributes to their sustained economic growth, the well-being of their peoples and the achievement of the goals of sustainable development. 
In this context, I call on all Arab funding institutions and funds to meet in Beirut during the next three months to discuss and develop these mechanisms. 
Dear brothers
The convening of this summit in Beirut at this delicate stage in the region is an affirmation of the role of Lebanon and its mission in its surroundings and the world, and we hoped that this summit would be an occasion to gather all the Arabs. There will be no vacant seats. To this vacancy, but the obstacles were, unfortunately, stronger. 
We also regret the lack of presence of the brothers, kings and presidents, and they have no excuse for their absence. 
The reunification remains an urgent necessity, because the challenges that beset our region and our identity and our identity can only be achieved through our consensus on our just causes and our universal national rights. To prosperity and stability. 
In conclusion, I welcome you again and wish success to the work of our Summit. " 
The speech of Aboul Gheit 
also gave the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, a speech in which he said:
"It is my pleasure and privilege to meet today in the Republic of Lebanon to inaugurate the fourth session of the Arab Economic and Social Summit. On this occasion, I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to you, Mr. President, and to your dear country on assuming the presidency of the fourth session of the Summit. I wish you success and good luck. 
I am also pleased to extend my thanks and appreciation to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for presiding over the previous session of the Summit and for the able and wise management of its work.
Our summit is held after an absence of six years. We have been occupied by the major events, and some of our countries have faced - and still are - the various types of security challenges, political turmoil and humanitarian crises. These challenges, however serious and dangerous, remain an extension of the more serious challenge of achieving Comprehensive development, and response to crises and social problems that often accompany the process of growth and modernization .. The facts that the Arab world has witnessed in its contemporary history that development, security and stability are all loops in one coherent system .. No continuous development without the umbrella of Istiq Security and security, protected from adverse returns and setbacks, and ensures the continuity of its path without interruption .. And no real stability and sustainable without comprehensive growth touches on all aspects of human life .. And raise and improve the quality.
Indeed, the path to development has become known, although not in any way easy or affordable. Others have taken it from us, and have determinants and requirements. The first is, of course, to achieve high rates of economic growth of at least 6 or 7% While there is a slight improvement in the expected economic growth rate in the Arab region, which is 2.7% this year, these rates are still insufficient to achieve the desired development boom, as well as the continuation and continuity depends on the stability of the situation Political and security issues that some of our States and societies continue to pour The price for his absence during the past years.
The main gap that separates us from the developments of the world economy is basically human capital. Knowledge and innovation, not manufacturing or services, are the greatest generator of high added value in light of the acceleration of the phenomenon called the Fourth Industrial Revolution with its various applications. The technological revolution will have to be our top priority in the next phase, and it will take more effort to narrow the digital divide with other regions of the world. More than half of the Arab world's population is not connected to the Internet. A .. If we do not improve the exploitation of the «demographic window« will this mass youth turn into a burden on the economies, but the engine of the disorder, and probably a fertile environment for the various forms of religious and political extremism.
In addition to the urgency of the social issue, some of our countries have experienced crises that have caused waves of asylum and displacement. Unfortunately, the Arab world is home to about half of the world's refugees and displaced people. It is enough to know that some 4 million Syrian children have left their schools because of the war there Seven years ago, it is enough to follow the serious humanitarian crises in both Somalia and Yemen ... without forgetting the tragic reality that our people suffer in Palestine because of the Israeli occupation imposed by closure, siege and unfair practices. This is to realize that the battle of development in many aspects of our Arab world I do not live in natural conditions or in a favorable environment, but in difficult conditions and fragile environment.
The hope here is to show greater solidarity and solidarity to support and support the societies underpinned by these humanitarian crises, including Lebanon and Jordan, which have borne a great deal of responsibility for the religion of Arabism and the duty of humanity. 
The challenges of achieving sustainable development require Arab governments to put the future in their account. We have to face difficult questions without delay or postponement. Questions on the provision of food to more than 360 million Arabs on the preservation of scarce Arab water resources. About 1% of the world's freshwater resources, how to develop them and ensure their sustainability. Questions on managing the energy mix with greater reliance on renewable sources. Questions on comprehensive Arab plans to address the global uncertainties such as climate change and technological development that threaten traditional jobs. .
Having said that, I wish all the best for the work of this important summit. I can only say in conclusion that our people throughout the Arab world are looking to stability away from the evils of turbulence and to a comprehensive renaissance that takes them to the times with its successive developments. They are looking forward to a day when they see their children living better than those they have lived in. They are healthier, better educated and more empowering ... and I believe that our country is capable of catching up. The purpose of the path ».

World Bank: Arab world faces urgent need to eradicate poverty




21/01/2019











The Arab countries face an urgent need to eradicate poverty , said Mahmoud Mohieldin, the World Bank's First Vice President, on Sunday. 
During a speech at the opening of the Arab Economic Development Summit in Beirut, Mohieldin explained that the summit is taking place amidst economic fragility. "We are witnessing a change in the balance of world economic power." 
He pointed out that the Arab economy is subject to many changes in light of several developments (human displacement, changes in the climate, accelerating the pace of technology). 
Lebanese President Michel Aoun said on Sunday that his country faces the biggest burden of hosting Syrian and Palestinian refugees.
"The Arab world has the highest unemployment rate in the world," said the First Vice President of the World Bank. "Arab society is a youth society, and these standards must be used in human development." 
Last year, Abdul Rahman bin Abdullah al-Humaidi, general manager and chairman of the Arab Monetary Fund, said the unemployment rate among young people in the Arab countries is 28 percent, compared to 12 percent worldwide. 
Mohieddin said that there are obstacles in Arab trade and problems in standards, and suggested that there should be integrated strategies for e-commerce. 'Sustainable development will progress only in the development of science and the use of technology.' 
The fourth Arab Economic, Social and Development Summit was launched in Beirut on Sunday after the absence of six years since the economic summit held in Riyadh in 2013, amid the presence of only three leaders.
Leaders of the Beirut summit are also participating, along with Lebanese President Michel Aoun, Emir of Qatar Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani and Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, while other countries are represented by heads of government or ministers.
