Digitalization is one of key foundational stones for the reconstruction and modernization of the Port of Beirut (PoB) operations, according to a new World Bank note that aims to provide guidance to policymakers on the crucial requirements for building back better this vital facility. The implementation of an efficient and effective PoB digital action plan is contingent on high level political commitment.
The note titled “Reforming and Rebuilding Lebanon’s Port Sector: Policies and Solutions for Digitalizing the Port of Beirut” outlines key principles for the design and implementation of digital trade solutions at the PoB. It explains the need for digitalization, outlines the building blocks of the required enabling environment, and presents the chronic obstacles to change and possible solutions to address them.
Developed in collaboration with Agence Française de Développement (AFD), this note deepens the digitalization agenda outlined in the first note on Lebanon’s port sector institutional reform published by the World Bank in January 2021.
