On 5 June 2017, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Eygpt unexpectedly announced that they would close its land and sea borders, as well as its airports, territory and airspace, to goods destined for Qatar.
These measures impacted all goods passing across (or that could pass across), the Government Communication Office said in a statement. It added that they further subsequently adopted a series of ancillary restrictions and arbitrary exceptions.
To protect the safety of consumers in the State of Qatar and to combat improper trafficking of goods, the Government issued a directive to find new suppliers of the variety of goods impacted, the statement noted, adding that products originating from the blockading states, which as a result of the blockade cannot pass the GCC Customs Territory, has to undergo proper import inspections and customs procedures.
The Government Communication Office stressed that Qatar conducts its trade policy in accordance with all of its multilateral and bilateral agreements. (QNA)Last updated: May 27 2018 03:01 PM
