Majallat al-Ghurfa al-Tijariyya Haifa was a monthly publication focused on commercial and economic issues related to Palestine. The first issue included a review of the history of the chamber of commerce in Haifa, written by Rashid al-Haj Ibrahim, a prominent political and military figure in Haifa and the country at large; a review of the state of agriculture in the country; and an article, written by Jad Sawidan, the former chairperson of the chamber of commerce, warning of the large gap between imports versus exports in the country. It also emphasizes the new reality in the aftermath of World War I and the opportunities that should exploited in order to strengthen economic and commercial ties among Arab countries. Many articles in the journal encouraged and supported the establishment of factories in order to reduce the share of imports and thereby increase economic growth. The magazine criticized the monopoly of Great Britain in regard to the local economy and the distribution of imports versus exports. Many articles also contain local and global economic data relevant to the economic situation in the country.
