Hajj Hassan: We are not targeting anybody from our industrial position

June 2, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Industry Minister Hussein Hajj Hassan said, “We are not in a commercial war with anybody and we are not targeting anybody in politics from our industrial position as we want the best commercial relations with our brothers and partners because we are exchanging with them exportation.”

Hajj Hassan’s words came Tuesday in the context of an event being held by the industry ministry to mark the National Day for Lebanese Industry under the chairmanship of PM Tammam Salam represented by Industry Minister Hussein Hajj Hassan at the headquarters of the Industrial Researches Institute at the Lebanese University in Hadath.

“Our procedures for protecting our industry are not political, we aim by such procedures to bring terms to the abundance of foreign products, not to stop importation,” said the minister.
