BEIRUT, March 23 (Xinhua) -- Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said Saturday that the main priority of his government is to implement reforms which is a very hard task, local media reported.

"Reaching this goal in Lebanon is not an easy task because different political parties do not have one common agenda for implementing reforms," Hariri was quoted as saying by the National News Agency.

Hariri's remarks came at the Serail Creativity Forum, a technology event for the youths.

Hariri said that he has the intention to make several important changes in Lebanon despite the resistance by some politicians.

"We hope that with you, Lebanon's youths, we will be able to implement all needed changes," he said while addressing a group of young people taking part in the forum.

Hariri also announced that the CEDRE program will start this year with lots of projects that will create job opportunities for the Lebanese youths in infrastructure and technology.

The CEDRE is an international conference which pledged to release 11 U.S. billion dollars in loans and donations for Lebanon to help the country's ailing infrastructure on condition that the country makes serious reforms.
