The head of the Federation of Iraqi Industries Ali Sabeeh said on Monday that the exemption of Jordanian goods from customs duties means exempting the world from customs and not only Jordan.
"The issue of exempting Jordanian goods from customs duties is a new disaster by exempting 399 items," Sobeih said. "How will there be support for the national product and in return there is an exemption for the imported goods?"
He added that "the exemption of Jordanian goods from customs does not mean exempting Jordan only, but exempting the world because everyone will do a work in Jordan and bring a product from China and write a manufacture in Jordan and send it to Iraq.
"Is it logical for the state to sign an agreement with another country without taking the opinion of the private sector?" He said, adding that "
He pointed out that "the 50 thousand projects include an average of 25 workers in each project, and if we consider that each worker family of 5 people, the number of about 4 million 500 thousand people benefit from the private industrial sector, without indirect persons such as carriers, drivers, .
He pointed out that "I submitted a proposal that instead of exempting the Jordanian goods from customs, they come to establish factories inside Iraq, and thus ensure that if an Iraqi person participates in the project, there will be benefit for the parties, and also ensure the employment of workers and the elimination of unemployment."
