The country enjoys a free-market economy, although US ratings agency Moody’s recently downgraded its B1 standing from stable to negative. In 2001, the Investment Development Authority of Lebanon (IDAL) was established to encourage investment in the country, offering tax breaks and a series of exemptions to companies upon both set-up and operation. Foreign investment is not restricted and the economy’s main areas of strength include banking and tourism. The average time taken to start a business in the country is nine days, according to IDAL.
