Prime Minister Najib Mikati was the guest of honor at the event, and he emphasized the importance of cooperation and reforms to overcome the current challenges facing Lebanon. Mikati said that the success of the Regie serves as an example of how productive and investment sectors can be managed successfully when those in charge respond to the requirements of the markets with the mentality of the private sector. The Prime Minister recognized the combined efforts of the Regie, SCOPSIS, and OpSec Security in launching and implementing the program, which has initially focused on tobacco product authentication and could potentially expand into other public sectors. The program aims to prevent illicit trade and safeguard the state's financial resources.
The Regie's Director General, Eng. Nassif Seklaoui, also spoke at the event, welcoming Mikati and Lebanon's Minister of Industrial Affairs, George Boujikian. Seklaoui further praised the fruitful cooperation with the Minister of Finance, Dr. Youssef Al-Khalil, to portray the keenness of adopting necessary measures to support the Regie's work. Despite his emphasis on maintaining economic stability, Eng. Nassif Seklaoui played an instrumental role in launching the program as his leadership and expertise enabled the program to meet its initial objectives. His primary focus on innovation in the industry and enhancing aid efforts through the public sector underscores his commitment to driving positive change in this industry and other public sectors.
Furthermore, the collaborative effort between SCOPSIS and OpSec Security has resulted in the successful launch of the Digital Tax Stamp solution. The Digital Tax Stamp solution is poised to prevent the spread of counterfeit products in several sectors. The system incorporates unique identification markings and secure information transfer to protect revenue, comply with WHO FCTC protocols, increase brand equity, and promote market traceability.
With a 360-degree view of product movements in the supply chain, officials can obtain live data insights and combat counterfeit techniques. Ultimately, the Digital Tax Stamp solution aims to legitimize the trade industry, promote transparency, and good governance, demonstrating the commitment of SCOPSIS and OpSec Security to promoting ethical practices in the industry.
Mohamad Ali Ahmad, VP - Government Solutions at SCOPSIS in Beirut, stated that, "The initial phase of this project is a proactive step towards adopting the provisions of the World Health Organization's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC). Besides preventing illicit trade and safeguarding Lebanon's much-needed revenue, this project will be a shining example for other countries in the region, demonstrating Lebanon's commitment to reform and progress."
The event displayed the importance of Lebanon's pathway to reforms and how the benefits will be able to aid the country. The Digital Tax Stamp solution represents a critical tool in ensuring compliance with international regulations, increasing transparency in the supply chain, and boosting consumer trust.
