Lebanon: Choppy waters as economy faces political headwinds

In this week’s report, Arabia Monitor analyses recent macro-economic (and political) developments in Lebanon, with a particular focus on the banking and energy sectors.

We tackle the following questions:

  • Between US sanctions and Hezbollah, the banking sector is caught in a tug of war. What are the consequences? And can this sector maintain its reputation as the most stable in Lebanon?
  • Lebanon has moved one step closer to tapping oil & gas wealth. Will the oil and gas resources see the light? Or will they remain stagnant under the waters of corruption and political bickering?
  • While many countries are facing tough challenges following Brexit, can Lebanon capitalise on this?
