Regie to start purchase of tobacco on 26 October with an increase by 50% on farmers’ revenues
Caretaker Minister of Finance Dr. Ghazi Wazni received a delegation from La Regie Libanaise Des Tabacs Et Tombacs (Regie) headed by Chairman Engineer Nassif Seklaoui who informed him that Regie has finalized all the preparations to start purchasing the tobacco produce of this season. The purchase will commence on 26 October 2020 in South Lebanon where 10 committees will be handling the produce.
 
The next station will be in North Lebanon starting on the 2nd of November 2020, and by mid-January 2021 a station will be established in Bekaa. It is worth mentioning that Minster Wazni had previously signed Regie’s proposal dated 30 July 2020 which aims at adopting a new mechanism that allows increasing the farmers’ revenues by 50% to help them overcome the difficult circumstances that Lebanon is passing through.
