Lebanon's Agriculture Minister Ghazi Zeaiter initialed Friday an agreement to improve the quality of Lebanon's olive oil production chain with the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM) Bari.The 1.5 million euro- ($1.8 million) projects – 1 million toward the olive oil project and half a million for coastal communities – funded by Italy's Foreign Ministry and AICS, represent an important step in supporting Lebanon's economy, Marotti said.CIHEAM Bari's initiatives in Lebanon include L'Olio del Libano 1, which provided technical and socio-economic support for the families of olive producers in marginal olive-growing regions in Lebanon and L'Olio del Libano 2, which established an initiative to combat plant diseases that threaten olive crops and bring Lebanon's olive oil quality in line with international standards.
