Mohamed Choucair, head of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture, discussed Monday the possibility of a visa-free policy between Lebanon and Algeria to boost tourism, local media reported.

Choucair’s remarks came during his meeting with Lebanon’s ambassador to Algeria Mohammad Hassan who organized a tour in Lebanon for the Algerian media delegation that came to attend Beirut’s summit.

Caretaker Tourism Minister Avedis Guidanian said that Lebanon succeeded in attracting tourists in the past couple of years, thanks to the cooperation with private tourism companies.
