World Bank: Impact of the 2019 Crisis on Private Enterprises in Lebanon

The World Bank commissioned InfoPro to conduct an impact assessment of the current crisis on the Lebanese private sector.  It aims to measure the impact of the crisis on key components of the private sector including sales, profitability, employment, finances, and expectations of the future. Two surveys at different intervals with the same panel of firms were planned to better understand the implications of the crisis, coping mechanisms utilized, and recovery path. In total 532 firms were interviewed nationwide and a follow-up tracker survey will follow. InfoPro utilized its own sample frame which is representative of enterprises nationwide to conduct the data collection process. Firms belonging to the Agriculture, Industry, Tourism, ICT, Financial services, Education, Healthcare, Real Estate and Construction, Retail and Commerce, Logistics and Transportation sectors were interviewed.
