Borders hold up Arab truckers

[ January 30, 2013   //   ]

Slow border crossings remain the biggest obstacle to trade in the Arab world, says the latest study by the New Eurasian Land Transport Initiative. Nelti spent four months monitoring barriers to international road transport in the region and found that 44% of transport time was lost at borders with some drivers waiting as long as two weeks. Final results and recommendations for national action to facilitate road transport are expected to be published in June 2013.
