Muscat, As many as 64,593 certificates of origin for domestic products exported to GCC countries and Arab states (63,119 for the GCC States and 1474 for Arab States) were registered with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry in 2018 compared to 14,014 certificates in 2017.

Talal bin Hamoud Al Balushi, Head of the Commercial License Department at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, said the increase in the number of certificates of origin in 2018 is due to submitting the certificates through ‘Invest Easy’ portal.
