AMMAN — Industry, Trade and Supply Minister Hatem Halawani discussed with two Sudanese ministers on Monday the mechanisms needed to enhance investment and commercial relations between Jordan and Sudan. According to a press statement received from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and supply, Halawani told the visitors that protocols and memoranda of understanding should not be kept on desks and that the private sector in both countries should seize opportunities to elevate the level of cooperation. He stressed Jordan’s readiness to provide all technical support to Sudan whether in terms of parallel consumer markets or industrial/free zones. Halawani expressed hope that the Joint Higher Committee’s technical and ministerial panels meeting presently in Amman would come up with practical results to advance Jordanian-Sudanese economic ties. The statement said Jordan is keen to raise the level of investments in Sudan noting that more than $1 trillion are invested in the industrial, agricultural and financial sectors.  The ministers mentioned opening marine transport channels as a viable conduit to activate bilateral trade.
