Allan said that all countries are easing measures on people by lowering taxes and fees to help them cope with the negative impact of the increase in energy prices and other products, but not in Jordan.

He also pointed out that all Eid Al-Adha goods arrived to the market and underwent clearance, indicating that the prices of clothes are going to be similar to those of last year.
