AMMAN — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, along with his wife, is scheduled to start an official visit to the Kingdom on Monday, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

He is scheduled to hold talks with His Majesty King Abdullah on means of enhancing cooperation and the strategic partnership between Jordan and Japan.

The talks will mainly focus on economic cooperation and investment opportunities, in addition to regional developments.

The Japanese prime minister will be accompanied by an economic delegation of CEOs from major Japanese companies in the energy, heavy and light industries, transport, infrastructure and ICT sectors.
