Lebanon has a free-market economy, with banking and tourism as main growth sectors. Services are contributing with 83% to the country’s GDP. Despite the need for upgraded basic infrastructure such as water, electricity and transportation, government investments are limited in Lebanon since the government is heavily indebted.
Swedish export to Lebanon consists of machinery, medical and pharmaceutical products, in addition to, paper and cardboard. Business opportunities exist on the Lebanese market, but the business environment, complex regulations and bureaucracy may create challenges for Swedish companies.
