AMMAN — The Jordanian Businessmen Association (JBA) and a visiting delegation of Jordanian-Australian businessmen have discussed the possibility of establishing closer investment cooperation and expanding trade relations between the private sectors of both countries.
President of the Jordan Business Association Hamdi Tabbaa told the Australian delegation on Saturday that Jordan is eager to strengthen ties with the private sector in order to attract more foreign investment, particularly from Australia, as reported by the Jordan News Agency.
Tabbaa remarked on the “remarkable development” of economic ties with Australia in recent years, saying, “We aspire to see them further prosper in a manner that reflects on the volume of trade exchange and investment.”
Noting the robust bilateral relations, especially in the fields of tourism, healthcare, and education, he detailed the opportunities for investment in massive construction projects and the need to promote ventures.
The president of the Jordan Business Association (JBA) recently invited Australian businesspeople to travel to Jordan to learn more about the opportunities for investment afforded by the country’s enactment of a new investment environment law in 2022.
The Australian delegation was led by Shawkat Maslamani, who expressed optimism that their trip would strengthen ties between Australia and Jordan and the Middle East region as a whole.
To maximize the economic benefits and incentives provided by both countries, the two parties have called for the removal of obstacles to cooperation and the establishment of joint ventures in dynamic industries.
