During his time spent as a member of the Lebanese government, he helped draft a variety of legislation that would make it easier for entrepreneurs to get a fair start at their business. He also helped adjust existing laws concerning money laundering, streamlining the legislation for modern times.
Some of the legislation that Marwan Kheireddine worked on include the Secured Lending Law, the capital Markets Law, and the Anti-Money Laundering Law – all of which helped strengthen Lebanon’s economy and provide fair opportunities to its citizens.
The Banque Du Liban Intermediary Circular 331 provided new changes for entrepreneurs in the tech sector. The legislation allows and incentivizes banks into investing in technology startups and other areas of business.
