Akouri Introduces An Nahar/Al Akhbar Canadian Publisher to US Audience

(MONTREAL, CANADA)Farmington Hills City Councilman John Akouri formally introduced Mr. Elie Moujaess, publisher of Al-Akhbar/An Nahar-Canada, to an audience of American dignitaries and political leaders assembled at an event hosted by a Washington public affairs organization in the United States. Al-Akhbar was founded by Elie Moujaess, and evolved from a bi-monthly magazine launched in 1991 under the name of Al-Rai, to a weekly information newspaper in 1996. Since its beginnings, Al-Akhbar focused on news relating to the Lebanese and Arab communities in Quebec and Canada. In 1997, Al- Akhbar concluded an agreement with An-Nahar in Beirut that allows it to publish a selection of articles of An-Nahar in its own pages. An-Nahar is considered one of the most prestigious newspapers in Lebanon and the Middle East. Its news and analysis inform decision makers concerned with political, economic, cultural and social affairs throughout the world. Al-Akhbar cooperates with An-Nahar for the publication of a quality weekly destined to the Arabic speaking communities of North America. The number of Canadians originating from the Middle East is estimated at about 600,000 persons, of which 250,000 are Lebanese.
