Central Bank Employees Indefinite Strike to Impact Banks, Citizens

Local economists believe that the indefinite strike announced by the central bank's employees in Lebanon last Saturday will have a big impact on people and commercial banks. "The strike of the central bank will impact clearing of checks because all transactions made by commercial banks go through Banque Du Liban (BDL)," Nassib Ghobril, economist and head of the economic research department at Byblos Bank, told Xinhua.
