Over 700 members and guests assembled at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf to attend the Australian Lebanese Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Luncheon. 2GB’s very own Ross Greenwood hosted the event and also conducted a live interview with Harry Triguboff AO, founder and Managing Director of Meriton Group of Companies.
The 81 year old Harry Triguboff delighted the audience with anecdote on his success and commentary on the building market. The interview also addressed the demand for accommodation in New South Wales and also the need for more state investment in infrastructure.
Maserati exhibited the recently launch Ghibli S. The Ghibli is an attention grabbing sporty model with an emphasis on glamour and sophistication. Maserati also donated a prized to the Business Card Draw. One lucky winner walked away with a Maserati drive experience, including lunch at Jonah’s Whale Beach for four guests.

Warren also announced he will be launching a new Australian Institute of Training office in Lebanon later this year.
