The remarks were made at a meeting with the Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) chairman and heads of trade unions involved with imports. During the meeting Qudah said that Jordan Customs will set up a coordination council to address regulation issues with the ACC.

The department is "keen to remove any obstacles facing the flow of goods to the local market and provide a safe stock of commodities, especially after the rise in freight charges," the director added.

The proposed coordination council would be tasked with addressing common concerns within the laws and regulations in force and establishing a new partnership, Qudah said, noting that the new body is scheduled to hold its first meeting at the beginning of next month.

Earlier this year, Qudah also said that the department will launch an information center to provide the details on importing goods and commodities, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
