Issa said in press statements that the ministry, due to the circumstances of the ongoing war in the country, began its activity since the beginning of last May, especially in the procedures for incoming and outgoing offices from its offices in the states, adding that those offices were already in place. They were represented in the northern states, the Red Sea, the Nile River, Al Jazeera, North Kordofan and North Darfur. He also noted that the work focused during this period on the states that have crossings and ports for import and export procedures, such as the Red Sea state, indicating that this is what made the ministry begin its work early on, with the testimony of exporters and importers. He denied that the ministry was a reason for slowing down and disrupting their work, and he added: We have shown very high flexibility to complete the procedures related to imports and exports, trusting the cooperation of the private sector to complete the cycles of export and import activity across the states.

Regarding the ministry directing its activities from the northern state, he said that this came as a result of the distribution of ministers to the states according to the nature of each state, referring to the commercial nature of the northern state. He explained the full coordination and cooperation in this regard to take the necessary decisions.
