Transportation costs down
KUWAIT CITY, Oct 16: Chairperson of the Union of Consumer Cooperative Societies Khalid Al-Hudaiban stressed the need to reduce prices of fruits and vegetables from Syria and Lebanon by 25 percent after opening the Jaber-Naseeb passageway between Syria and Jordan, reports Al-Rai daily.
Al-Hudaiban told the daily that prices should decrease considering the difference in the cost of land and air transportation.
