Abstract
A country that treats foreign and domestic investors alike in regards to commercial dealings motivates foreign investors to play a fundamental role in stimulating economy in such country. However, non-discriminatory treatment is sometimes undesirable from the perspective of public policy. Most national laws provide certain measures of discriminating between foreign and domestic investors in order to give its citizens more privileges and advantages over foreign investors. This is applicable in the Lebanese Commercial legal system. This paper discusses the discrimination that is implemented by the Lebanese Commercial Law between Lebanese and non-Lebanese investors specifically in regards to commercial representation and Joint Stock Company. This paper also provides some comparative studies between the Lebanese and the American approach in regards to discrimination between national and foreign investors within commercial companies and commercial representations.
