EU reaches deal on COVID passes to open up tourism
The European Union reached a deal yesterday on COVID-19 certificates designed to open up tourism across the 27-nation bloc this summer, as a rapid pick up of vaccinations allows widespread easing of coronavirus restrictions.
First Qatari tracking number launched
The presence of a tracking number on products facilitates the process of identifying all product details, from its source to the details of its validity, components, and in some cases its price. Previously, Qatari producers used tracking numbers belonging to foreign countries to distinguish their products. Now Qatar products can have a barcode starting 630 which identifies them as originating from Qatar.
