AMMAN — Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Saturday stressed the importance of Germany’s support for Jordan.

While attending the annual meeting of the Jordanian-German Business Council,  the premier highlighted the country’s achievements during the few past years, noting that Jordan’s exports to Germany are still minimal while its imports from Germany amount to around JD650 million.

Speaking at the meeting, German Ambassador Ralph Tarraf highlighted investment areas that Germany can contribute to in Jordan, especially renewable energy, food industries, small- and medium-sized enterprises and pharmaceuticals.

He also stressed that Jordan should increase its exports to Germany, adding that the Kingdom has promising industries but the related expertise and skills need further development.
