Exodus reaching tipping point in Lebanon

Immigration from Lebanon is entering a state of “exodus” as the many crises hitting the small Mediterranean country remain unresolved.

The continuing immigration of thousands of Lebanese is reaching a tipping point with alarming indicators suggesting that scores of people are escaping political, economic and social hardship.

This is a direct consequence of Lebanon’s collapse, the report noted, which has forced 61 percent of companies in Lebanon to reduce their permanent staff numbers by an average of 43 percent.

The crisis has spared no one even Interior Ministers have seen their purchasing power collapse.
