AMMAN — The Cabinet, in their session on Wednesday, headed by Premiere Dr Abdullah Nsoor, announced the exemption of the “eggs” commodity from general sales tax, as it was subject to 4 per cent on sales.

Minister of Agriculture, Dr Akef Zoubi, stressed that the decision is important to both producers and consumers, noting that the exemption will serve to lower costs on producers given the already low supply prices of eggs, in an effort to support the egg-laying poultry segment of the agriculture and livestock sector.
