AMMAN — Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) President Issa Murad on Sunday met separately with Belgian Ambassador Hendrik van de Velde and Japanese Ambassador Shuichi Sakurai, and discussed with them ways to enhance commercial and investment ties between Jordan and their respective countries at the private sector level.

At the meeting with Van de Velde, Murad spoke about the ACC's plan, along with a big commercial delegation, to visit Belgium during next spring, noting there are many Belgian companies investing in the Kingdom.

The ambassador said a Belgian commercial mission, headed by the foreign minister, is scheduled to visit Jordan next month to open new scopes of bilateral economic cooperation, noting that the delegation comprises companies representing different economic sectors.

During his meeting with Sakurai, Murad expressed ACC's readiness to cooperate with the Japanese embassy in Amman especially by providing it with information and acquainting it with available economic opportunities, in addition to arranging a visit to Japan at the level of the private sector next year.

The Japanese diplomat highlighted Jordan's importance as a safe and stable commercial hub in the Middle East and its role in connecting trade flows among different countries.
