Banque Libano-Française (BLF) hosted, in partnership with the “Economic and Capital Markets Research Center” (ECMRC) of the University of Balamand, a conference on “US Elections: the Victory of Populism”.
Business journalists attended the conference that took place on December 7, 2016 at state of the art “The Floor” premises that gathers BLF Capital Markets, Treasury and Private Banking teams, as well as the Dealing Room and Libano-Française Finance (LFF).
Father Paul Douaihy, Director of the ECMRC, shed light on populism “which is being seen in the United States and across Europe as an anti-establishment vote fueled by economic, social and cultural problems”.
In 2007, BLF and the ECMRC had signed a cooperation agreement whereby the Bank finances the Center’s financial market research, analyses and studies. On the other hand, the Center initiates students on economy and capital markets and issues daily, weekly and monthly economic reports.
