AMMAN — The Cabinet on Sunday decided that an earlier decision stipulating a five-year age limit on imported automobiles will not be applied to cars that have been cleared under a statement exempting their owners from customs duties.

The former decision will not apply to these cars, including those obtained by officers or persons with disabilities, in accordance with an amendment approved on Sunday.

The Council of Ministers also approved a draft agreement to be signed by the Natural Resources Authority and a Chinese company for oil shale exploration in the Wadi Al Naadiyeh region.

Moreover, the Cabinet listened to a briefing presented by Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply Hatem Halawani on the outcome of the meeting of the Jordanian-Palestinian economic committee recently held in Ramallah.
