AMMAN — A Jordanian delegation, headed by Ministry of Industry, Trade and Supply’s Secretary-General  Dana Al Zu’bi, on Saturday visited Germany to discuss the promotion of national exports, especially to European markets and particularly Germany, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

The delegation’s visit comes within the framework of the institutional partnership with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, in cooperation with the German-Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Berlin.
