Also choosing Elias Murr to be president of the Interpol fund was also a positive boost in the list of lebanese achievements around the world.

And this week witness the come back of the NEW7Wonders competition, this time to choose Beirut as the best capital of the world, so the question remains, if Jeita had such a big campaign, how would beirut beat that with a bigger one?
