AMMAN – Jordan has decided to dispense with the use of the port of Haifa for exporting Jordanian goods to the United States and other countries, with the opening of an export line to transport goods from the port of Aqaba at lower shipping fees, lower transportation costs, and within the same timeframe.اضافة اعلان

During his attendance at a session of the Board of Directors of the Jordan Chamber of Industry (JCI) hosted by the Chamber of Industry in Irbid, Minister of Industry, Trade, and Supply Yousuf Al-Shamali affirmed that the industrial sector has demonstrated its presence by focusing on maximizing the quality of national products and introducing new productive categories, making them more competitive domestically and internationally. He pointed out that between 30 to 50 percent of Palestinian imports are from Jordan.

He explained that prices did not witness any increases due to the Israeli aggression on Gaza or the conflicts existing around the world; on the contrary, prices have decreased for about 75 items available on Jordanian tables, except for a relative increase in the price of cucumbers due to the delay in the winter crop.

He stated that 40 million dinars have been allocated in the 2024 budget to support the program for the development of national industries, targeting large, medium, and small industries.

He also mentioned that industrial companies competing for support from the program will receive non-refundable grants of JD500,000 for large industries and between JD250,000 to JD350,000 for medium and small industries.
