Lebanon struggles to protect currency’s value

Beirut takes unprecedented measures to safeguard devaluing lira that threatens to worsen country’s economic crisis.

Lebanon’s currency, the lira, is under pressure.

There are fears that without much-needed reforms, it could lose its value even more, worsening an already bad economic situation.

The Central Bank has dismissed those fears, but for the first time, it is taking measures to safeguard the lira.
