AMMAN — The Jordan Investment Commission on Tuesday called for measures to be taken to increase trade with Tajikistan.

During a meeting with members of a Tajikistani business delegation, led by First Deputy Chairman of the State Committee on Investment and State Property Management Muminzod Mubin, acting chairman of the JIC, Faridon Hartouqa, highlighted the Kingdom’s highly developed legislations that support the establishment of high value-added projects, a commission statement said.

Hartouqa presented Jordan’s economic reforms that have resulted in notable economic developments, including legal and legislative amendments, the signing of Arab and international agreements and comprehensive financial and monetary policies.

The Kingdom could present a suitable gateway for Tajikistani companies with an interest in regional markets, Hartouqa said, noting that Jordan will play a crucial role in Syria's and Iraq’s reconstruction.   

Several international logistics firms have taken an interest in investing in Jordan, Hartouqa highlighted, citing the Kingdom’s strategic location, the various trade agreements that have been signed with a number of countries and the private sector’s vast experience in the markets of these countries.    

“The free trade agreements that Jordan has signed over the past years have provided investors with access to markets that tend to over 1 billion consumers, including in the US and Europe,” Hartouqa said. 

Hartouqa and Mubin discussed ways to enhance bilateral cooperation between Jordan and Tajikistan, with a focus on economic and investment fields, according to the statement. 

For his part, Mubin pointed to the distinguished relations between Jordan and Tajikistan, noting that the visit seeks to boost the value and the scope of the partnership and cooperation between the two countries’ commercial sectors.
