An official agreement was signed this week by the Director-General of the Libyan Customs Authority, Suliman Ali and his Tunisian counterpart Youssef Zouaghi to officially resume customs work at the border crossing of Ras Jedier.

Representatives of both nations agreed to organise a joint customs committee to oversee the customs work with plans to meet in mid-may to fully implement the agreement and facilitate the smooth operations at the port.

The ease of bilateral procedures at the border crossing is of vital importance to both nations’ struggling economies amidst the crippling conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
