Royal Tulip Hotel – Ashrafieh opened its doors today, under the auspices of Tourism Minister Michel Pharaon, in the presence of MPs Nadim Gemayel and Serge Torsarkissian, in addition to a crowd of political, social and media figures.
Minister Pharaon delivered a word on the occasion in which he hoped for the election of a President of the Republic so as to “end the crisis and stop the paralysis creeping into institutions.”
“Beirut was recently elected as the first culinary destination in the world. It was also chosen as the first destination for ships in the region, which indicates how essential Beirut’s role in the region is, mainly at the level of civilization. Beirut carries the torch in the face of a series of injustice, racism and destruction of civilization in the region,” Pharaon said.
He finally thanked the persons who invested in the hotel noting that “they are of Lebanese descent and they truly believe in the country.”
“I will be visiting Brazil next month to encourage Brazilians of Lebanese origin to come to Lebanon,” the Minister concluded.
