AQABA —  Jordan Customs, in close collaboration with USAID-funded Fiscal Reform II Project (FRP II) officially launched on Wednesday the Pre-Arrival Processing (PAP) programme at Aqaba Port. "FRP II provided technical assistance to introduce PAP at Aqaba Port and conducted a comprehensive assessment of the port operations," Jordan Customs said in a press statement. "The assessment concluded that PAP pilot average results for the targeted sample which lasted three months did not exceed five days, in contrast to the average time of 15 days for imports processing in the World Bank Trade Across Border report." Implementing this programme across the board will contribute to improving cross border trade thereby further strengthening Jordan’s competitive edge.
