Representative of the clothing, fabric, and jewelry sector at the Jordan Chamber of CommerceAsaad Al-Qawasmi said that the sector has begun preparations for the season, which will be free of COVID-19 restrictions for the first time in two years.

Qawasmi believes that “there is strong demand in the markets, and while it cannot be said that the market has fully recovered, there is a partial recovery.”

Qawasmi pointed out that most of the purchasing activity is in large stores, and “we hope that it will later be felt by smaller outlets in the coming period conceding with the payment of salaries and the postponement of loans for the current month of April.”

He said that in general “prices are stable and that favors consumers” and that most imported clothing goods come from China, Turkey, East Asian countries, Europe, and Egypt.

He pointed out that the decision to reduce customs duties and maintain related custom estimation lists until the end of Ramadan contributed to stabilizing clothing prices and allowing healthy competition.
