The ceremony was held under the patronage of the ministry’s Director General Mrs. Nada Sardouk.
Commenting on the occasion Mrs. Sardouk said:
“I am delighted to participate in the launch of Image Concept Inc. today and I would like to thank its founders for this innovative and promising initiative. Cosmetic Tourism is a widely recognized and appreciated concept and we are very hopeful that this initiative will contribute to our economy and benefit tourism and medical sectors. Lebanon is renowned worldwide for being one of the top destinations for tourism thanks to the beauty of its natural landscape and the richness of its heritage. The world also speaks of the unparalleled wealth Lebanon offers on the medical front and in various fields.”
Zeina El Haj Founder & Managing Director of Image Concept Inc. said: “ This is a truly innovative concept and the first of its kind in the region. It combines two very successfully recognized and renowned sectors of the Lebanese economy, the medical and tourism industries which have both built a strong and immaculate reputation in various corners of the planet. By combining these two aspects we are helping tourists seeking medical treatment in Lebanon find their requirements in full privacy and priority and enjoy a smooth, easy, simple and hassle-free experience.
We work closely with HIMC, the most advanced medical hospital for plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments and Nakhal Tours, the leaders in tourism in Lebanon since 1959. This collaboration gives our customers access to the best cosmetic tourism services and facilities that Lebanon offers in both fields. We are committed to continuously develop innovative packages which provide real value to our customers and we will continue to strengthen our ties with medical and tourism institutions to provide rewarding cosmetic tourism services and deliver real value for our customers and meet the current demands of this travel trade”.
