Amman eases Egyptian exports' access to Jordanian market
Jordan-Egypt, Economics, 10/13/2004
Jordan has agreed to grant Egyptian products unfettered access to its markets in a move expected to boost trade relations between the two Arab states.
At the end of the Egyptian-Jordanian trade committee on Tuesday, Jordanian officials agreed to allow Egypt's mango and guava products into the country, exempt the Egypt-made canned juice from customs duties and facilitate the transit of Egyptian exports to Gulf States, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.
The two sides said these facilities would push forward bilateral relations and remove all obstacles down the road of furthering trade exchange which amounted to $ 136.6 million in 2003, of which the Egyptian exports accounted for $ 112.6 million.
The committee meeting was co-chaired by Minister of Foreign Trade and Industry Rashid Mohammad Rashid while the Jordanian side was led by Deputy Premier and Minister of Industry Mohammad Al-Halaika.
