He said the trade movement with Jordan’s northern neighbor is “very weak” as a result of import prohibitions aimed at protecting the two sides' national industry.

He said he hoped that there would be a decision to remove “hurdles” from both sides.

For the sake of encouraging a higher volume of trade exchange between the two countries, the cost of transportation must be reviewed, he said.
“It cannot be believed that we import from all countries worldwide, but not from a neighboring nation,” he said.

He pointed out that Jordan and Syria need to take decisions that would contribute to removing obstacles to intraregional trade, and encouraging business activity between the two sides.
