"Model for Growth", the 2003 Strategy for the Lebanese Software Industry

On Monday December 16th, 2002, the Association of Lebanese Software Industry (ALSI) organized, a strategy formulation workshop, “Model for Growth”, at the United Nations’ House in Beirut. The event was endorsed by the Ministry of Economy and Trade (MoET), and conducted in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The “Model for Growth” workshop was attended by leading Lebanese software companies, executives, government officials, and industry experts. The objective was to highlight the major challenges/obstacles to growth faced by the Lebanese software industry and plan future strategic direction, to where the industry becomes a competitive player on the regional and international markets as well as a major economic sector in Lebanon.

ALSI regrouped the challenges identified during the workshop into nine distinct categories/industry components and complemented the findings with two central activities that form the building blocks of all future action.
