Lebanon: Lebanese Market Overview

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Contact:

Lebanon is recovering from a long-lasting internal conflict that damaged infrastructure and stymied economic development. The post-conflict period has seen strong economic growth, which has slowed moderately in recent years, due to regional instability. In spite of this, Lebanese economic growth remains positive. Lebanon’s well-developed food processing sector continues to demand imported ingredients, and higher income Lebanese consumers consistently purchase high-value imported food products. Opportunities for US exporters exist, though competition from EU suppliers is notable.
