Abu Faour, Lassen tackle means to increase exports to Europe

Minister of Industry, Wael Abu Faour, discussed with European Union Ambassador, Christina Lassen, ties between Lebanon and the European countries and means of increasing Lebanese exports to Europe through enhancing their productive, competitive and differential capacities.

Abu Faour briefed Ambassador Laassen on the protectionist measures taken by the Lebanese government, adding that they are aimed “to strengthen the Lebanese industry, stabilize it (…) and secure a resilient environment for it in the face of goods exported to Lebanon and subsidized by the country of origin, which reduces the competitiveness of national production to the minimum.”

Abu Faour appreciated the supportive European stance based on historical and close relations between Lebanon and various European countries. He also thanked Europe for providing assistance to Lebanon since the outbreak of the war in Syria, whether directly or through assisting Syrian refugees.

He also called for more flexibility and thus the removal of some technical barriers to the introduction of certain products into European countries.

“We are interested in helping Lebanon and we understand the suffering, difficulties and challenges facing the country, especially as a consequence of the Syrian crisis and the displaced Syrians in Lebanon,” said Lassen.
