Director-General of Ministry of Agriculture Louis Lahoud said in an interview with MTV: "It is necessary to have a good investment in agricultural lands, and in the crisis we are experiencing, we need to export after securing local sufficiency".

"Our capabilities are small, but our offices are distributed throughout the Lebanese territories, so we are ready to help any farmer", he added.

"We are working to help beekeepers, and within a month we will start exporting honey to the European Union, which will bring in hard currency", he continued.

Lahoud pointed out that "the number of forest guards is small in proportion to the number of missions; I call on every citizen to exercise their conscience, on municipalities to integrate with the Ministry of Agriculture, and on the judiciary to take supportive rulings against anyone who is proven to have set fires".

He stressed that "our teams work and monitor the quality of fish in Lebanese markets, and we have laboratories that examine every shipment of meat that comes from abroad; in case of violation, we return the shipment to the country of origin or destroy it".
