Such measures and procedures don’t achieve fair competitiveness of cross trade with those countries, said a Saudi Press Agency report.

They will also have negative impact on the competitiveness of the private sector of the kingdom to enter those markets, the authority added.

Applying of the new measures will help reduce the negative impact on trade exchanges with those countries, enhance the Saudi private sector’s competitiveness, enable the flow of the kingdom’s exports to foreign markets and guarantee fair competition, said the authority.
