‘Iraq keen on enabling Jordanian exports to easily reach market‘

AMMAN — Iraqi Ambassador to Jordan Safia Al Suhail stressed that her country is keen to enable Jordanian exports to easily reach the Iraqi market, and that the slow implementation of the Iraqi Cabinet’s decision regarding the exemption of Jordanian goods from customs duties is due to the preoccupation of the Iraqi government in the recent period with parliamentary elections and continuing efforts to achieve security and stability.

She also noted that there is a delay from the Iraqi customs regarding the implementation of the decision for goods that pose a threat to national products, as Iraq is obliged, like Jordan, to protect its domestic products, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

She pointed out that a meeting will be held soon with a Jordanian delegation headed by the Minister of Transport Walid Masri to complete research on the issue of transport and to facilitate the transport of Jordanian exports to Iraq.
