During the first three quarters of 2016 the "One Stop Shop" directorate of IDAL noted significant traffic from investors who showed continuous confidence in Lebanon. Specifically, investors were interested in its potential to become a production hub, despite the unstable regional economic environment. The reviewed projects are worth USD 259.6 million and expected to generate more than 2,176 jobs when implemented.
60% of these projects were eligible for IDAL's incentives. The remaining projects did not meet IDAL's requirements for investment size and number of jobs created. Nonetheless, they still represent important progress to Lebanon's economy.
The Industrial and Agro-Industrial sectors have been the largest beneficiaries of the investment activity. More than 60% of investors have implemented new projects or expanded in these two sectors and their sub-sectors.
