EUBAM Rafah provides support to EUREP Trade Facilitation Project in collaboration with EUBAM Libya
June 22, 2023
Two Customs Experts from EUBAM Libya have successfully completed their second deployment for EUBAM Rafah. They were deployed for three weeks through the Exchange of International Staff Mechanism to provide crucial support for a key Trade Facilitation Project of the Office of the European Union Representative (West Bank and Gaza Strip, UNRWA). The primary objective of the project is to enhance Palestinian trade with Jordan by introducing shipping containers for goods.
EUREP approached EUBAM Rafah seeking technical support to further develop this important project, recognising the need for a cargo terminal for containers/logistics center/bonded warehouse in Jericho. This is considered a vital next step towards full containerisation of Palestinian trading flows with Jordan. Due to the limited resources of EUBAM Rafah, the Mission requested support of EUBAM Libya.
