AMMAN — Amman Chamber of Industry (ACI) President Ziad Homsi expressed the chamber's interest to benefit from Chinese expertise to develop the Jordanian industrial competitiveness.

At a meeting with Chinese Ambassador to Jordan Pan Weifang, he said good relations between the two countries should play a role in enhancing economic ties and increase Chinese investments in the Kingdom, according to an ACI statement.

Homsi, who is also a senator, called on the Chinese diplomat to help expand investments in Jordan and launch effective partnerships between Chinese investors and their Jordanian counterparts in a way that serves joint interests of both countries.

Osama Qteishat, head of the Dead Sea Product Manufacturers Association, said that Jordanian Dead Sea products enjoy high-quality added value since raw materials in these industries are not available except in the two countries on the seashores.

Qteishat noted there are 40 facilities that produce these items and export them to 50 countries. The ambassador expressed his country's readiness to cooperate with Jordan to contribute to increasing Jordanian exports to China through enhancing the Kingdom's participation in exhibitions that are hosted in China, the statement added.
