Amman, Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply, Tariq Hammouri, on Sunday discussed with Kazakhstan’s Ambassador to Jordan, Aidarbek Tumatov, preparations for the upcoming meeting of the joint committee in Amman.

The committee is co-chaired by Hammouri and the Kazakh Agriculture Minister, and includes representatives from both the public and private sectors.

During the meeting, Hammouri underscored the importance of working towards building an active economic partnership, and further benefiting from the opportunities available to serve the two countries’ common interests.

He said making progress in terms of economic cooperation requires the participation of the two countries’ private sector, noting that the sector creates many investment projects, boosts trade exchange, and benefits from available opportunities.

In another meeting, the minister also discussed with South African Ambassador to Jordan, Ebrahim Saley, means of boosting bilateral economic cooperation and signing a trade cooperation agreement to revamp trade exchange.

Jordan’s investment environment in various fields is “promising,” he added, pointing to a number of bilateral and multilateral free trade agreements that allow Jordanian products through top international markets without quantitative or customs restrictions.

For their part, the two ambassadors underlined the importance of establishing economic relations with Jordanian business community that would bear fruit for all parties involved.
