Presentation

Just like their Arab-language counterparts, the French-language media in Lebanon are currently facing significant financial problems and an ageing readership. Nevertheless, the French-language press is highly valued by many in Lebanon who retain an attachment towards France and the French language. It has always been seen as a bastion of freedom, promoting the values of tolerance and openness towards others.

Launched in 2016, the Digital East project was already a measure aimed at supporting two of Lebanon's French-language titles (L'Orient-Le Jourand Magazine), helping them to adapt to the evolution of their environment. "Digital Readings" is designed to support a number of media outlets in Lebanon, which were selected after a call for applications, in structuring and modernizing their offering with a view to expanding their audience.
