AMMAN — Jordan Investment Commission (JIC) President Montaser Oqlah said Saturday valued the performance of the Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) as a qualitative leap.

He mentioned specifically the  work mechanism at the local level and efforts to foster economic relations with other countries.

During a visit to the ACC with other JIC officials, Oqlah highlighted the ACC's role in stimulating and promoting the investment environment in the Kingdom, as well as supporting the institutional structure of the JIC.

All stakeholders are paying attention to ACC's activities and external visits to promote investment in the Kingdom, he said, expressing hope there would be coordination and cooperation among different chambers in such activities.

Oqlah reviewed the investment window project, indicating that some obstacles remain with regard to granting authorities, especially from the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), and the ministries of municipal affairs and health. 

JIC had recently reached an understanding regarding GAM's commissioner in the window, by dealing with him as a region director enjoying equal authorities to those of Amman mayor in the sectors of hotels, hospitals and clinics, Oqlah said.

Industry, Trade and Supply Secretary General Yousef Shamali commended the continuous support of the private sector to the ministry, expressing appreciation for a bus given by the ACC as a gift  to the ministry to transport its employees.  

ACC President Issa Murad expressed the chamber's readiness to cooperate with the JIC in launching promotion campaigns outside the Kingdom, in addition to ACC's readiness to participate in enhancing national employment policies to curb poverty and unemployment.


Murad highlighted the importance of enhancing the role of the chamber's office in the investment window and giving it wider authorities to facilitate and simplify investment procedures.
