Regie begins collecting tobacco from southern farmers

7-11-2018

The Regie Libanaise de Tabacs et Tombacs began yesterday the delivery of tobacco supplies from southern farmers at a price of LBP 13,500 and 14,000 per kg. Tobacco growers for their part, appealed to House Speaker Nabih Berri, the finance minister Ali Hassan Khalil and all concerned officials to raise the prices commensurate with the costs of cultivation of this crop. The chief of the Federation of Trade Unions of Tobacco Farmers in Lebanon, Hassan Faqih, explained that the delivery process is underway in 11 Regie centers in the South, namely, in Nabatiyeh, Saida, Siddiqin, Tibnin, Sawaneh, Srifa, Rmeish, Aitroun, Mais el Jabal, Aita el Shaab and Dahir. This year’s harvest was good, as well as the prices, he said, asking the Regie administration, in collaboration with the Federation and agricultural coops, to continue their support program to this agriculture.
