Aloush emphasized that
efforts are underway to ensure a diverse array of mobile devices catering to
various consumer budgets, Al-Ghad reported.

These import statistics are
derived from official data from the Jordanian General Customs Department.

Aloush highlighted the
prevalence of credit card installment systems for purchasing mobile devices,
with total transactions amounting to JD15 million in 2023. However, purchases
made via bank cards witnessed a decline last year after a surge from JD16 million
in 2021 to JD23 million in 2022.

Attributing the decline in
sales to taxes imposed on mobile phone purchases, Aloush expressed concerns
about Jordan’s competitiveness compared to neighboring countries.

In response, the association
is launching a comprehensive study to evaluate the impact of taxes on mobile
devices and their effects on Jordan’s market attractiveness. This initiative
aims to address the preferences of visitors who previously favored purchasing
devices in Jordan due to favorable pricing.

The study will spotlight
challenges and opportunities within Jordan’s mobile device market, advocating
for a conducive business environment that fosters growth and aligns with global
technological advancements.
