The United Kingdom and Lebanon have a long-standing trade relationship, with current bilateral trade reaching £560 million in 2020. An Association Agreement between us came into force on 1st January 2021 and contributes to increasing trade by reducing tariff barriers and identifying trade opportunities for both British and Lebanese businesses.
