AMMAN — Acting Jordan Investment Commission (JIC) chairman Faridon Hartouqa on Sunday met with the China-Arab States Technology Transfer Centre’s general manager and an accompanying delegation representing major Chinese companies in the agriculture, technology and healthcare sectors. 

During the meeting, the acting chairman said that the two countries’ strong political relations have helped their institutions “deepen” their understanding of one another over the last few years, according to a JIC statement. 

Hartouqa also stressed the “advanced” relations of the two countries in different fields, especially in the sectors of economy, trade and investment. 

During the meeting, he highlighted the Kingdom’s most important investment opportunities and economic reforms, which have helped create a more suitable environment for investors, according to the statement. 

He added that Jordan welcomes Chinese companies which often bring with them advanced technology when they invest in Jordan.  

Jordan can provide a gateway for Chinese companies to enter regional markets, as well as countries that Jordan has free trade agreements with, the statement said, highlighting the Kingdom’s role in rebuilding neighbouring countries.  

The centre’s general manager expressed his gratitude for the briefing on Jordan’s investment environment and reiterated the advanced relations between the two countries. He also expressed his hope that the commission will continue to work to promote economic cooperation between the two countries.
