How TecEx Can Help You Import into Lebanon
The Lebanese Software industry has a long history of success, going from strength to strength, benefiting significantly from government efforts to boost the economy following the end of the civil war in 1990. It also benefitted from efforts made in the early 2000s, which saw an increase in foreign investment. Today Lebanon boats a well-developed fast-growing Tech industry with the ICT sector acting as a critical contributor to its economy. Recently, the country has also been recognized as a leading regional exporter of Software development and services.
Perhaps one of the leading contributors to Lebanon’s success is the focus on entrepreneurship and a high level of education. As a result, the country ranks 1st in MENA for technological readiness and 2nd for innovation. Competitive labor costs, well-established infrastructure, and a booming market make this country a good prospect for foreign Tech investment.
However, as with others in this region, importing into Lebanon is a complex process with intricate licensing, creating long lead times. Contact one of our TecEx specialists for a tailor-made solution to help clear your goods through customs quickly and reliably.
