Lebanon’s Industry Ministry and the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) launched on Wednesday a guide to combatting COVID-19 for the country’s industry sector, the National News Agency reported.
Titled “Recommendations and Preventive Measures to Combat COVID-19 in the Industrial Sector,” the guide was launched under the auspices of Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab represented by Industry Minister Imad Hoballah.
Hoballah noted that his ministry had already taken a series of measures in this framework to fortify work safety in the industrial sector while maintaining the level of national production.
Meanwhile, Italian Ambassador to Lebanon Nicoletta Bombardiere said the COVID-19 outbreak prompted Italy to focus more on supporting productive sectors with the aim of enhancing livelihoods.
“Italy is contributing to a project to establish three industrial zones in Lebanon, in addition to its support to the agricultural sector,” the Italian ambassador noted.
