As the current President of the Association of Lebanese Industrialists (ALI), Frem answered when asked about the advantages of the Lebanese industrial sector:

I believe if we know how to position ourselves and have the right value proposition in our products, there will be a new niche for the Lebanese products. “Made in Lebanon” is somehow a label for high quality products or products in which high quality is within reach.

help international businesses reconsider Lebanon as the gate to a trillion dollar economy in the Middle East”,

while emphasizing that the Lebanese young, educated and high profile executives are effectively the main competitive factor of the Lebanese industrial sector.
