Lebanon's last overland route closure chokes off exports

Lebanese workers pack fruits and vegetables into crates and boxes at a warehouse in the town of Bar Elias in the Bekaa ValleyLebanon’s land exports to Gulf markets have been choked off, leaving millions of dollars in goods stranded after the closure of a vital crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian border last month. The Nasib border point was the last remaining gateway for Lebanese truck drivers transporting agricultural and industrial products to Iraq and Gulf countries. “Exports by land have stopped entirely,” said Ahmad Alam, whose company exports Lebanese fruit and vegetables to Arab countries. Goods transported overland made up 35 per cent of all of Lebanon’s exports, economic analyst Nassib Ghobril told AFP.
