Tripoli vegetable market
will bear fruit
Financing of $12 million by Saudi Fund
A wholesale fruit and vegetable market in Tripoli will be completed in six months on a Mina municipal land plot. It will replace the current Tebbaneh market, which caused extensive traffic jams.
Works include demolishing a building at the market’s entrance. The contractor is Al Jihad for Commerce and Contracting. The market is composed of a large building with spaces to be rented by 164 traders registered under the syndicate of fruits and vegetable traders.
Toufic Dabbousi, Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture in Tripoli and the North, said: “The market has high-end specifications, a modern design, and ample parking space.”
The project has received $12 million in financing from the Saudi Fund. Its execution is supervised by the Council for Development and Reconstruction (CDR).
