AMMAN — Jordan European Business Association (JEBA) board members on Saturday discussed with Swiss Ambassador to Jordan Michael Winzap ways to develop bilateral economic and trade relations, especially between private sector institutions. The two sides considered organising a visit by a Jordanian economic delegation to Switzerland to enhance partnership between Jordanian companies and Swiss counterparts. The visit will aim to improve the investment environment in the Kingdom and attract Swiss investments. Issa Murad, head of the JEBA, touched upon the massive opportunities available in the Jordanian economy, which could pave the way to investment partnerships that would enhance the presence of Jordanian products in the European country. Winzap said bilateral relations have developed remarkably during the past few years through the Swiss support programme to Jordan in humanitarian aid to relief refugees, and through cooperation in environment protection, infrastructure development and healthcare. He noted that the two countries are currently discussing to liberalise trade, in addition to facilitating transportation, especially that Jordan has good relations with European countries.
