AMMAN — A business delegation from the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) will explore trade opportunities in Jordan and best ways to maximise commercial ties during a visit to the Kingdom between May 26 and 28, according to an embassy statement. Information technology, pharmaceuticals, textiles, fertilisers, automobiles and spare parts are among the main areas of interest to the delegation besides electrical machinery, frozen meat, organic and inorganic chemicals and agricultural products. FIEO, in association with the Amman Chamber of Commerce and the Indian Embassy in Amman, will be organising B2B (business to business) meetings to connect entrepreneurs with potential customers, strategic partners and other like-minded entrepreneurs, according to the embassy statement. India, one of the Kingdom’s main commercial partners, represents one of the biggest markets for Jordan’s fertiliser industry and it is a main importer of its phosphate and potash exports. In 2013, the joint Jordanian-Indian commercial exchange totalled $1.61 billion, according to the embassy website.
