In a press statement, Al-Qawasmi proposed reducing curfew hours during the second half of Ramadan, with business hours starting at 9pm, until 1am. According to Al-Qawasmeh, this would contribute to reducing the crowdedness at markets.

The representative noted that the sector is living in “total darkness”, due to the uncertainty regarding economic sectors’ return to business as usual.

According to Al-Qawasmi, the imports of the garment sector in preparation for Eid Al-Fitr season reached some JD75 million.
