Lebanon to facilitate maritime exports to bypass Syria

The Lebanese government has said it has started facilitating the export of agricultural produce via maritime routes on Tuesday, with a first shipment containing 200 refrigerated containers of potatoes setting out for the Gulf, The Daily has reported. The country's ports will now accept shipments until 6pm rather than 2pm, and will ease procedures for filling containers with produce, said Elie Zakhour, head of the Beirut International Chamber of Navigation. The use of roll-on-roll-off (ro-ro) ships would also lower the price of exported produce as those vessels would likely take large shipments of the same produce to a destination port, he added.
