CHAPTER EXCERPT

"The Syrian conflict has affected our trade deficit with our exports decreasing by at least USD1.5 billion over the last six years, while naturally exports should have increased. The short-term solution is mainly to give incentives to exporters through tax reductions that relate directly to exports, as well as incentives on the costs of production, such as electricity."

- Raed Khoury, Minister of Economy and Trade
