Libyan restrictions on ceramics imports could halve Egyptian exports

Libyan restrictions on ceramics imports could halve Egyptian exports: A recent decision from Libya’s cabinet banning ceramics imports from land crossings is threatening to cause a 50% drop in Egyptian ceramics and marble exports, according to Al Shorouk. Egypt exports the products to Libya — Egypt’s biggest export market for the goods — via land crossings. The decision is expected to push up prices and could lead to a slowdown in output at local factories.
