Lebanon is currently facing what the World Bank describes as the worst economic crisis the world has witnessed in a century and a half; The financial situation has deteriorated since the fall of 2019, and the national currency has depreciated more than 10 times against the US dollar, which has led to an increase in the prices of unsubsidized products by more than 400%.
This comes at a time of increasing shortages in medicines, gasoline and electricity, as a result of the decline in foreign currency reserves in the Central Bank.
The crisis was exacerbated by the failure to form the new Lebanese government, despite the appointment of the leader of the Future Movement, Saad Hariri, to form it more than 7 months ago, due to its collision with obstacles in the distribution of ministerial quotas and the political balance in Lebanon.
The international community has repeatedly affirmed its readiness to provide financial assistance to Lebanon, linking this to the formation of the new government and the approval and implementation of economic and financial reforms.
