In the presence of President of the Jordan Exporters and Producers Association for Fruits and Vegetables, Saadi Abu Hammad, the discussion covered measures to re-export agricultural products, including vegetables and fruits to the Qatari market.

The minister highlighted the importance of the Qatari market which used to absorb about 95,000 tons annually and decreased in recent years to reach 5,000 tons, pointing to the government's keenness to overcome all challenges facing the flow of agricultural commodities.

Al-Louzi affirmed readiness to coordinate with the brotherly Qatari side to facilitate procedures for Jordanian refrigerated truck drivers to obtain multi-entry visas through the Saudi territories, provided that agricultural products are exchanged at the Saudi-Qatari land crossing by using back-to-back shipment.
