Another economic genius analyzes Lebanon:
"Investing in other sectors, such as industry, agriculture or any other field where raw materials are imported, proves costly and does not achieve a high added value. This excludes the fields that rely on innovation, such as fashion design.
The efforts currently underway to direct Arab investments towards various regions in the world, as a means to secure the basic crops and grains, can also include Lebanon. With its remaining agricultural areas, Lebanon can shift to new crops that partly supply Gulf countries with their needs".
This is about a country that imports 80% of its food needs.
