AMMAN — A Jordanian economic delegation, representing health and pharmaceutical industries, participated recently in the German-Arab Health Forum VIII held in Berlin, according to a press statement from the Amman Chamber of Industry (ACI).

"The chamber organised a diversified work programme for the Jordanian delegation in cooperation with the director of the office of the German-Jordanian Economic Cooperation Fahmi Najjar," the press statement said.

The programme included visiting a number of medical institutions and manufacturers of medical devices and prostheses in Germany; as well as a meeting with the deputy director of the German Academic Exchange service (DAAD), during which the heads of Jordanian universities discussed topics of scholarships and post-graduate studies in Germany.

Moreover, an expanded meeting with Charite hospitals managers (the largest hospitals in Europe) was held. ACI President Ziyad Homsi indicated that 17 Jordanian pharmaceutical factories export their production to more than 60 countries.

He said these factories export over 80 per cent of their production abroad and help support the trade balance in Jordan by nearly $ 600 million.
