The minister said that industry sector accounts for around eighty percent of Lebanon's exports. Still, the country's trade market continues to shrink. Trade deficit in September 2010 amounted to 10.172 billion, the country's highest ever. Increases in personal loans along with loans stagnation added to the problem.
