Lebanon, grappling with a heavy debt burden, is facing its most severe economic crises since the 1975-1990 civil war. With the rise in prices, many Lebanese have fallen into poverty and become more dependent on subsidized food, medicine and fuel.
An official source told Reuters that Lebanon has about $ 1.8 billion in its foreign exchange reserves that can be made available to support basic food and other imports, but it may preserve their survival for about another six months by canceling subsidies for some commodities.
In light of the depletion of dollar resources, the Central Bank provided foreign cash for imports of fuel, wheat and medicine at an official price pegged at 1,507.5 Lebanese pounds to the dollar, which is much less than the current price.
A list of around 300 other food and basic commodities is subsidized at 3,900.
Parliamentary consultations are set to begin on October 15 to choose a new prime minister, in an effort to push the divided Lebanese political elites to move in the direction of forming the country’s next government.
Salim Sfeir, head of the Lebanese Banking Association, said that the country’s next government needs ministers with practical experience in finance and other areas to restore confidence in the collapsing economy, after the latest attempts to form a new government last week failed.
The Money Exchange Syndicate announced pricing the exchange rate of the US dollar against the Lebanese pound with a moving margin between buying at 3850 pounds and selling at 3900 as a maximum.
