Sweden Drops Import Duties on Grapefruit from Holy Land

Download PDF for this date

The removal of all import duties on grapefruit imported into Sweden from Palestine was announced in a decree published here today.

This step has been taken in order to promote trade relations between Palestine and Sweden. Sweden is able and eager to export large quantities of paper for printing and wrapping purposes to Palestine.

The growth of Swedish exports to Palestine and the increased interest in Palestine products is seen from the export figures of last year, which show that Sweden exported to Palestine merchandise valued at yette Street.
