AMMAN — Jordan has a “huge” stockpile of goods and foodstuff, enough to cover domestic need for several months, president of the Jordan Chamber of Commerce, Nael Al-Kabariti, said.اضافة اعلان

In comments reported by Jo24, Kabariti said all commodities are available in the local market.

He said intense competition between merchants locally led to a decrease in the price of some commodities, benefitting consumers.

But he warned that prices of some commodities have dramatically increased globally.

Energy costs are one of the most important operating factors in the commercial sector and one of the obstacles to economic growth.

“If energy costs decrease, that will reflect on the price of goods”, he said. “But the price of electricity in Jordan is among the highest in the world and constitutes a significant burden on all sectors.”
