Monetary restrictions on imports. The need to pay certain amounts of money on imports is another important restrictive measure imposed by many Arab countries in order to limit imports. Annex 3 indicates that 12 Arab countries request advances for imports. These deposits range from 10% to 100% of the c.i.f. value. Some Arab countries require this percentage to be deposited in foreign currency. Similarly, these monetary restrictions have an impact on foreign trade in general and on intra-Arab trade in particular, as they tend to freeze intra-Arab patterns. Second, Arab countries have tried all approaches to promote cooperation and integration among themselves and increase trade flows, but they have failed where other groups have achieved results. Since Arab production is less diversified than, for example, industrialized or emerging countries (NICs), restrictive business practices in Arab countries more drastically reduce trade opportunities for Arab exporters than for exporters from industrialized or emerging countries. Even trade preferences for Arab products are still selectively applied to a small number of manufactured products. Elasticities were measured separately by the regression-oriented change in the volume of inter-Arab trade, by the change in the volume of foreign (non-Arab) trade, and by the change in the total volume of trade relative to the growth of real GDP per capita.

In each of the three regression equations, a number of dummy variables were introduced to explain changes in elasticities after the application of preferential trade agreements. The Agreement to Facilitate and Promote Trade among Arab League Member States4 was signed in 1981 and entered into force in 1982. This agreement is a declaration of intent by the signatories to negotiate the total elimination of tariffs, non-tariff taxes and similar taxes for manufactured and semi-finished products. It thus complements the exemptions from customs duties applicable to agricultural products traded by Arab countries under the 1953 Convention. In addition, the 1981 Agreement invites Member States to consider the necessary financing of intra-Arab trade on a preferential basis. The 1981 agreement introduced a specific approach to trade liberalization, which involves the negotiation of agreements between certain Arab countries on individual products, and then an attempt to extend these agreements to all members through the Economic and Social Council of the Arab League.
