UAE, Saudi smooth customs spat

Dispute which has caused huge losses to traders from both countries set to be resolved, officials say.

A customs dispute over electronic certificates of origin, which has caused huge losses to UAE and Saudi traders, is expected to be resolved, officials said on Saturday.

A refusal by Saudi customs to recognise certificates issued by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) has seen large numbers of goods and customs letters turned away from the country’s borders in recent months.

Director general of the UAE Federal Customs Authority said officials from both countries had "shown understanding" following a meeting in Riyadh with Saudi customs and DCCI representatives, reported UAE daily Emirates Business 24/7.
