In his opening speech of the year as Syndicate President, Tony Ramy said, “I am delighted to welcome the syndicate’s new family members, especially the leading women who have left their own mark on this sector. The new council is characterized by the spirit of youth and the diversity of expertise, which all members will employ for the betterment of the hospitality industry. The previous phase was organizational and focused on restructuring the union by increasing the number of its registered members and the quality of services they offer the country’s tourism sector. This is especially important now that Lebanon has a new government. It will allow us to modernize various laws and decrees so as to better regulate and improve the tourism sector in general and the restaurant sector in particular. I would also like to express my support in the syndicate members’ efforts to arrive at solutions that will see them overcoming current obstacles to ensure a brighter future for Lebanon. I am confident that we will succeed in achieving this and in turn see Lebanon’s hospitality industry rising to its former glory. In conclusion, I would like to commend the solidarity exhibited by the professionals and their support for their union. This, I am certain, will further empower them to offer more and by reciprocity grow our syndicate.”
