AMMAN — Jordan offered to be a centre for storing and distributing fresh Australian meat to neighbouring markets due to its geographical location, according to a press statement from the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The press statement alluded to the discussions that took place on Thursday between Industry and Trade Minister Hatem Halawani and Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chairman Geoff Puttick. Discussions between the two sides also covered the possibility of exporting meat to Jordan at competitive prices and setting up a medical equipment plant. Halawani outlined Jordan’s most important economic developments besides the competitive investment climate among regional countries stressing the Kingdom as a gate for accessing neighbouring markets. He called on Australians businessmen to invest in Jordan and take advantage of the Kingdom’s available opportunities as well as forming private sector partnerships stressing Jordan’s central location as a gate for accessing other countries’ markets. Puttick expressed Australia’s willingness to boost economic cooperation with Jordan, especially in commercial and investment fields.
