Jordan plans to resume vegetable exports to Iraq in November

Jordan said Saturday it expects to resume vegetable exports to Iraq in November after the opening of its border crossing with Iraq.

Exporting fruits into the Iraqi market has already started since the opening of the Turaibil Border Crossing between Jordan and Iraq after a two-year closure, Saadi Abu Hamma, president of the Jordan Exporters and Producers Association for Fruits and Vegetables, told Xinhua.

Jordan currently exports some 120-200 tons of fruits to Iraq every day, he said.

"We are now in discussion with Iraq and we expect the start of exports of vegetables to the Iraqi market in November," Hamma added.

He also called for a smooth movement of trucks between the two countries to ensure a rising trade in various areas.

Prior to the closure of the borders, Jordan exported some 500-600 tons of fruits and vegetables per day to Iraq.
