AMMAN — Jordan imported 63,642 cars during 2012, around 10 per cent less than the same period last year, according to Jordan Customs Department (JCD). JCD Director General Ghalib Sarayrah indicated on Sunday that 17,561 cars were re-exported to the Gulf states. He attributed the drop in imported cars to the government’s recent decision to place a five-year age limit on imported autos.
