The Ministry of Economy and Trade has released a new negative import and export list prohibiting 12 items, including batteries of all types, solar panels, industrial pipes (iron - carboxylate - aluminum - copper), cables, and electrical transformers, as well as electricity poles.

The list also comprises valves, metal tubes, aluminum sheets, iron and stainless steel, gas cylinders for welding, electricity generators, electrical and electronic devices, measuring equipment, and pumps.

Last September, the Ministry of Economy and Trade issued a decision banning the export and import of several goods, urging the competent authorities to abide by its decision.
