Assistant Administrator Mara Rudman in Baskinta
April 24, 2012

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Assistant Administrator for the Middle East Mara Rudman completed her visit to Lebanon today by participating in Rural Tourism Day in Baskinta. 

In the decades before the civil war, Lebanon was a renowned tourist destination, popular not only for Beirut’s cosmopolitan flair and nightlife, but also for its Mediterranean beaches, historic sites, and mountainous ski areas.  Thirty years of conflict and political instability dramatically reduced the number of tourists and Lebanon’s most beautiful destinations became neglected.
