Amro mentioned that the improvement in the purchase movement of food and Ramadan goods would be modest, as Jordanians are presently focused on Eid essentials, Al-Ghad reported.

He added, “Market activity during the current month of Ramadan has been 30 percent lower compared to usual," confirming that food and Ramadan goods prices are ‘excellent, stable, and available in sufficient quantities.’

Amro highlighted that major commercial centers, supermarkets, and malls continue to offer realistic discounts on various food items and goods needed by Jordanians and consumers during the holy month.

He also noted that the flow of imported goods to the kingdom is smooth, with no delays in their arrival, mentioning a crisis in inspection operations at Yard four in Aqaba Port due to the accumulation of goods.
