Member Updates: Fransabank is the only Lebanese representative in the upcoming CIIE
24 Oct 2018


24 October 2018, Adnan Kassar, Chairman of Fransabank Group and Honorary Chairman of SRCIC, received an interview with Xinhua in Beirut, Lebanon.



Chairman Adnan Kassar aims at promoting Lebanon at upcoming China's import expo. As the only Lebanese representative in the upcoming China International Import Expo, scheduled from Nov. 5 to 10 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, Fransbank Group will take advantage of this opportunity to gain a market share in China.


Fransabank Group established in 1921 as one of the oldest banks in Lebanon, is considered a major contributor to the signing of the first trade agreement between Lebanon and China in 1955. The agreement was not the end of Kassar's work, but inspired him to do more to promote Chinese goods across the Arab world.


Official data reveals that the two-way trade between China and Lebanon reached 2 billion U.S. dollars in 2014, making Beijing the top trading partner of Beirut.


This fast-growing China has motivated Kassar to expect more from the trade between the two countries.
