Cairo- Feb 20, 2022

Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has met with Jordanian Minister of Industry Trade and Supply Yousef al-Shamali, on the sidelines of the Egyptian-Jordanian Joint Higher Committee, held in Cairo and chaired by the prime ministers of both countries.

The meeting explored means to expand mutual economic ties between Egypt and Jordan, mainly in trade, industry and investment.

“The Egyptian-Jordanian higher committee represents a basic pillar for strengthening joint cooperation between the two nations in all areas of common interest,” Gamea said.

The government, she added, is keen on making a quantum leap in bilateral relations with Jordan, pointing to continuous coordination between the two ministries of trade to address the challenges facing trade flows between their respective markets.

Al-Shamali, for his part, expressed his country's eagerness to enhance cooperation with Egypt in holding mutual trade fairs in Cairo and Amman, noting that a potential Jordanian expo will be held in Egypt during the second half of the year.

He further stressed the importance of translating the tripartite agreements signed between Jordan, Egypt and Iraq into concrete cooperation projects that serve the interest of the three peoples.
