Tourism Minister Michel Pharaon launched on Wednesday the Kartaba festival, and called upon Education Minister Elias Bou Saab to extend the summer holiday.
He urged Bou Saab to accept this request in order to allow all Lebanese to attend the festivals to be held in September across Lebanon.
Pharaon asked the Education Minister to open schools on September 18 instead of 15.
“We need to support festivals and encourage tourism,” he finally said.
