AMMAN — Italian President Sergio Mattarella has bestowed on Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) President Issa Murad the Order of the Star of Italy, an ACC statement said on Sunday.

Italian Ambassador to Jordan Giovanni Brauzzi presented Murad with the Order last Wednesday during a ceremony in recognition of Murad's role in enhancing Jordanian-Italian relations.

During the ceremony, attended by Industry, Trade and Supply Minister Maha Ali, Amman Mayor Aqel Biltaji and senior dignitaries and diplomats, Murad expressed gratitude and stressed the depth of bilateral relations, especially those bonding the ACC and the Italian embassy. 

The ACC president said Italian products enjoy the trust of Jordanian consumers, and called for holding regular commercial exhibitions between the two countries, in order to exchange expertise and get to know the national products of each country. 

Murad also talked about the results of the London donor conference and highlighted His Majesty King Abdullah's efforts to improve Jordan's chances to benefit from it despite challenges and hardships facing the Kingdom's national economy from the repercussions of the Syrian crisis.


Brauzzi voiced his country's appreciation for the economic role Murad played in improving bilateral economic relations.
