Palestine exports surplus guavas to Jordan

Sept. 3, 2014 7:54 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 6, 2014 9:41 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture exported 20 tons of guavas to Jordan on Wednesday and is working to export another 15 tons this week, a PA official said.

Tareq Abu Laban, marketing manager at the Ministry of Agriculture, told Ma'an that the PA received permission from Jordan to export 70 tons of Palestinian guavas.

Abdullah Lahlul, deputy minister of agriculture, told Ma'an that the ministry exported 720 tons of guavas at the beginning of the year, and 900 tons last year, amounting to roughly 10-15 percent of Palestinian annual production.

Israel maintains complete control over all border crossings in and out of the West Bank, restricting Palestinian imports and exports.

In recent months, however, Palestinian authorities have tried to increase the territory's economic independence and increase trade relations with Jordan and other regional states.
