Beirut, Lebanon: Annahar has launched a new project in support of independent journalism. The newspaper's collaboration with Gargour Automotive Company, was kicked-off Friday at Alfa Romeo headquarters in Dawra, Lebanon.

Annahar's Editor in Chief, Nayla Tueni, said that "the aim of the project is to support journalism," while the General manager of Gargour Automotive Company Najib Debs stressed the “importance of journalism and supporting it.”

Annahar's "tribute" to its loyal audience, who has stood by its side in all circumstances is not a new move, as the newspaper has previously initiated a lottery draw in 2000, Tueni said. “The project back then was targeted to readers of Annahar’s print edition.

In 2019, however, anyone who subscribes for a year to Annahar Premium will have the chance of winning a "Spider Alfa Romeo 4c, “ in a draw to be held on 28 February.

Premium users are not the only target audience; Annahar is also inviting people who are aware of the importance of a free press to subscribe to the news service.

Debs mentioned that "Gargour's belief in the importance of journalism was a key reason for collaborating with the renowned Annahar media outlet."

He then explained that the car, which costs $100,000 is a “4-cylinder unique sports car, equipped with a turbocharger, and weighs 850 kg, is considered light, compared to other sports cars. Spider Alfa Romeo 4c's speed reaches 100 km/hour in 4.5 seconds."

This great opportunity is for anyone who is keen on supporting independent press! At the same time, it is a big chance on winning! So, what are you waiting for?
