Roadmap to Economic Recovery

A critical analysis of the Lebanese government's rescue plan, countered with practical recommendations.

Today, the Lebanese economy is experiencing an unprecedented currency and financial crisis, all the while suffering the negative impact of the Covid-19 lockdown.

Amidst such a crisis, the previous Lebanese government produced a rescue plan titled The Financial Recovery Plan with the aim of containing the current crisis while delineating various reforms to pave the way for a new model for the Lebanese economy.

This study analyzes the potential economic and social impact of the plan, plays out a a “counter scenario” of a possible negotiation with the IMF, and provides practical recommendations to change the economic model and mitigate the social impact of the transition.
