An announcement was made during the talks that Slovak entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to take part in the construction of a power plant in Lebanon, the details of which are to be presented at the current talks. The latest conflict between Israeli and Lebanese armed forces destroyed a considerable part of Lebanon's infrastructure. The damage to airports, schools, hospitals, telecommunications, energy and water networks etc., totals more than €1.9 billion.
