Algerian exporters, days after the opening of land border crossing between Algeria and Mauritania, expressed their desire to export Algerian products after expressing shock at the very high prices of transport through land crossing, which was attributed by actors in this context to the rising price of fuel, especially diesel fuel, as it reached in a number of oil stations DZD 200, which is a stumbling block in the face of the movement of Algerian goods, and they sent a correspondence to the Commerce Minister and Director of Trade in Tindouf province (Southern Algeria).
According to the text of the letter, which copy was received by Echorouk, on Friday, these businessmen confirmed that since the opening of the border crossing, they have been facing various problems in the commercial activity of exporting some of the Algerian products to the State of Mauritania through the land crossing in the state of Tindouf, forcing them to switch their activity to exportation through the shipping route, which is more expensive, and the abandonment of the land crossing, which is no longer important, which the Ministry of Commerce has undertaken to discuss and find appropriate solutions.
