Member of the Amman Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Asaad Al-Qawasmi, said, on Saturday, that the disbursement of employees’ salaries by some institutions contributed to revitalizing the movement in the market, indicating that the purchase movement is linked to the consumer’s priorities, as purchasing behavior is directed towards basic materials such as foodstuffs now.
Al-Qawasmi said in a statement to "The Kingdom" that the activity of the market after the payment of salaries is an indication that the availability of liquidity plays a role in enhancing purchasing power, noting that the active movement has not yet included sectors such as clothes, shoes, and others.
He pointed out that the process of postponing installments by banks provides liquidity, as the value of installments per month is estimated at 250 million dinars.
He added that the postponement of installments is not only through banks, but also through funds such as the Women’s Fund, Agricultural Credit, Hajj and Orphans Fund, and others.
He said that a request was made through the Amman Chamber directly to postpone the installments without interest or delay commission, and so far, the banks have not taken any action in the process of postponing the installments.
Al-Qawasmi considered that postponing the installments concerns the citizen and moves the markets that complain of weakness in purchasing power and cash liquidity.
Al-Qawasmi called on the government to postpone tax installments, sales tax, flats and professional licenses.
As for the availability of commodities, Al-Qawasmi said that commodities of various types are available in the markets, and there was no shortage of any kind with the advent of the month of Ramadan.
