Nuhad Daghir, Nasri Kawar, and Adib Saad were honored at a luncheon held
at the Holiday Inn Dunes Hotel on July 24 by the Association of Importers
and Distributors and Suppliers for Agricultural Production in Lebanon
(Asplante). Among the one hundred guests attending the event were former
Prime Minister Rashid El-Solh, Minister of Agriculture Talal Al-Sahili,
and former Ministers Elie Skaff, Adel Cortas, and Othman Al-Dana.
The president of the association, Michel Akl, gave a speech about the
many valuable contributions made by the three AUB professors to agricultural
development in Lebanon. He described how much they accomplished in their
fields of specialization and how the University's school of agricultural
and food sciences emerged as the leading agricultural institution of its
kind in the Middle East.
