NNA - Minister of Industry Imad Hoballah tweeted this Friday: "The government of Lebanon is in favor of a free economic system, and we will build upon our capabilities. We will not allow anyone to blackmail us. Our food, industrial and social security, and the success of our industrialists, farmers, and merchants, will only be achieved by our openness towards the east. We will not wait for a signal from anyone, as those who are 'waiting for a signal' have already beat us there."


"Let us aim east, through Syria, towards the Gulf countries, Iraq, and the rest of the friendly Arab and eastern countries. Let our products be enjoyed by their natural and historical favorers. Let us go east, beyond Syria, Iraq and the Gulf, to ease the dollar pressure on the lira, and to deal a blow to smuggling, evasion and dumping."
