Upgrading the quality of olive oil, table olives and wine of Lebanon


The Agriculture and Tourism Committee endorsed unanimously on October 24th a bill that allows access to the International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives, 2015. The Committee hoped the Speaker of the House will present the draft for ratification at the first upcoming meeting of the General Assembly. On the other hand, the ministry of agriculture, in cooperation with the French Embassy, the Lebanese universities (USJ, Holy Spirit- Kaslik, Beirut Arab University, Balamand) and the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute organized yesterday a scientific awareness conference on ‘olive oil and wine’. The conference aims at enhancing the quality of the products destined for local consumption and export. The chair of the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute, LARI, Dr. Michel Efram, said the Institute has developed its scientific research in the two sectors, in coordination with pertinent French institutes, and lauded the continuous French support for LARI. For her part, the representative of the French Ambassador to Beirut, explained the nature of the Lebanese-French collaboration in improving the quality of the olive oil and wine industries which constitute a national heritage of the two Mediterranean states.
