FAO Agricultural Development Economics Policy Brief, No. 39.

The main factors limiting the growth of trade in Lebanese agricultural and food products include limited access to international markets, product quality and certification, inadequate trade infrastructure, lack of competitiveness, lack of trade agreements, and difficulties in substituting imported goods with domestic products. Measures that support producers with better information on opportunities for developing export promotion strategies should be adopted to support agricultural exports. Government programmes should also focus on expanding and increasing access to agricultural export markets.
