Egyptian administrative procedures affect Jordan's exports — Abu Haltam

AMMAN — The Egyptian government has imposed non-customs administrative procedures on its imports that would affect Jordan's exports to Egypt, Iyad Abu Haltam, president of the Society of East Amman Industrial Investors, said Tuesday.

Egypt's ministry of commerce and industry late last year issued new regulations for registering qualified factories that can export their products to Cairo, Abu Haltam added, noting these procedures would affect the flow of commodities, especially the Jordanian, and violate the Grand Arab Free Trade Zone Agreement.

He also called on official institutions to address the Egyptians to exclude Jordanian products from these procedures or taking administrative practices to protect national products by applying similar procedures on Egyptian goods.
