Minister Saboonjian is fully confident of the agro-industry sector in Lebanon and calls for its active participation in the New York Food Exhibition


The Minister of Industry, Mr. Freij Saboonjian, expressed his full trust in the Lebanese agro-food industry and its capacity to expand in outreach to many external markets.  He invited industrialists to take part in the New York Food Exhibition especially since the USA represents a large market which is potentially ready to absorb Lebanese products.  Saboonjian’s declarations were made during a meeting he held yesterday with the new president of Syndicate of Lebanese Food Industries (SLFI), Mr. Munir Bsat.
For his part, Bsat complained about the protracted requests made by the electricity company and addressed to industrialists who have defaulted on the payment of their electricity bills.  Bsat claims that these requests for payment do not take into consideration the lower fees granted to industrialists although these industries are officially registered at the Ministry of Industry and have an industrial permit. Finally, Bsat called on the Ministry to effectively support the participation of Lebanese industrialists in international exhibitions including Gulf Food Exhibition in Dubai, Jebbah Exhibition in April 2014 and SIAL French Food Exhibition in France.
