CAIRO, The Federal Customs Authority (FCA) today participated in the 38th session of customs directors-general in the Arab League, which started here today in presence of Ambassador Kamal Hassan Ali, Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Affairs at the Arab League.

Ambassador Ali underscored the necessity of coordination among the custom directors-general to address requirements for setting up the joint trade zone and other related issues in addition to facilitating inter-Arab custom tasks.

Services feature as a top priority in the joint Arab economic tasks, he said, noting the Arab countries are bonded with a "transparency treaty," according to which the signatory states notify the Arab League about actions with respect to inter-Arab trade to avert complications in the commercial activities among them.

Alia Al Marmoom, director of customs affairs at FCA, represented the authority at the meeting.
