Lebanon is a small nation on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea positioned in the Middle East. Majority of the Lebanese people live in the urban areas, as many developing countries have. The capital city of the country is Beirut that is located in the center and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. The other major cities include Tropoli in the north and Sidon in the south.

Unlike neighbouring Arab countries, Lebanon’s local industrialization consists of producing goods for local expenditure like food, furniture, and clothing. Their most important industrial is focused on food, beverages, and chemical products, which receive the highest level of investment.

Beirut, a major Mediterranean port, became the principal port for travellers in and out of Lebanon. Also, Tropoli’s port was completed in 2001. The country had a trade fleet of 67 ships and proud of their 12 ports. Aside from ships, buses—public or private, are used in travelling connectedly in and around the cities. They are popular and inexpensive and can be stopped anywhere along the way by simply sleeting. Apart from buses, the city later served transportation services by either a service or taxis. Lebanon has nine airports. Beirut International Airport, the country’s major airport is located in the southern suburbs.

Lebanon quickly tacit the importance of having strong IT industry and in 2000 the country positioned along with the highest rates on Internet users in the region. Though telecommunication services were damage during the civil war, it has been largely restored by the help of the government and providers. There are 32 FM radio broadcast station and one AM radio broadcast station that were also damage by the war but was completely rebuilt and revamped. 28 TV broadcast are present in the country and two cable companies are at their services.

Being a part and to understand the importance of e-revolution is one of the prior goal of the country. E-commerce is well-adapted and the Lebanese community living in foreign countries generally allocates to their countries success. Mobile communication is a part of Lebanese life and much a help in all economic and personal aspect. A number of companies are already competing to get outsourcing contracts from global software companies. As predicted, Lebanon could become a core of software expansion in coming years.
