LEBANON

2012 Ranking: 79th Largest Export Market for U.S. Goods (2011: 65th)
In recent years, the U.S. has established itself as Lebanons top trading partner, partly as a result of the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement signed between the two countries in 2006. In 2012, Lebanons exports to the U.S. grew by 2.35 percent to $81.19 million, while U.S. goods exports to Lebanon fell by 42.3 percent to $1.04 billion. Top three export sectors to the U.S. included Food & Kindred Products (at $24.56 million), Goods Returned (at $13.45 million), and Miscellaneous Manufactured Commodities (at $10.7 million).

This chart identifies the market share of only the top seven countries exporting to Lebanon, so the percentages do not equal 100%. For additional information, please visit www.nusacc.org.

The data in this publication are drawn from the U.S. Bureau of the Census using the latest U.S. export information. Export numbers may understate total U.S. exports because county-specific information for some products (e.g., mining, forestry, fishing, and waste and scrap) is not available.
