Egypt's imports from Lebanon stood at $116 million dollars in 2018, the cabinet media centre said in a report issued on Friday.

Stone products, cement, steel, cast iron, agricultural products, cosmetics, and home appliances topped the list of Egypt's exports to Lebanon, while hair care products, wheat, scrap metal and books accounted for Egypt's key imports from Lebanon.
