I was talking to a US businessman in IT, and he was telling me how he was dealing with all gov. in the M-E, except for the Lebanese.

I started explaining the usual BS about regional and local situation in light of latest developments...

In Leb. there is zero gov. will to help agri., it is that simple. There is a will for VAT, Solidere, real estate, tourism projects, banking secrecy... because they generate funds that can line the right pockets.

I admire you for trying to get us interested in farmers and potatoe (Quail spelling) crops. May the force be with you.
