The Board of Directors of the Jordanian Businessmen Association (JBA) and the Tunisian Ambassador here, Khaled Al-Suhaili, announced on Monday, that the 3rd session of the Jordanian-Tunisian Joint Business Council will be held mid-March remotely.
Speaking during the joint meeting, JBA President, Hamdi Taba'a, stressed that the council, which was established in 2016, aims to promote joint investments and contribute to increasing the volume of trade exchange between the two countries, stressing the willingness to inform the Tunisian business community about the available investment opportunities in the Kingdom.
In a JBA press statement, Taba'a indicated that the Covid-19 pandemic's consequences require keenness to achieve recovery and continue to play the role of the private economic sector through holding business councils and establishing joint investment partnerships.
In turn, the envoy stressed the "deep-rooted" relations between the two countries, which requires opening new economic horizons and increasing the volume of joint investments, indicating that Jordan and Tunisia have signed bilateral agreements that constitute the basis of the joint cooperation process.
The diplomat pointed to the importance of discussing joint investment opportunities in "promising" sectors of common interest, most notably information technology, pharmaceutical industries, medical supplies and food industries.
Jordan can benefit from Tunisia's experience in the agricultural field, especially in terms of developing production chains, he said.
In addition, the JBA members stressed the importance of maintaining efforts to strengthen relations and enhance bilateral cooperation to enter new markets in Africa and Europe, as well as cooperation in reconstruction projects in the region, the statement said.
Jordan's exports to Tunisia amounted to JD10 million in 2019, which were concentrated in pharmaceutical products, fertilizers, organic chemicals and iron and steel, compared to JD15 million of imports in fish, machinery, electrical equipment, inorganic chemicals, and flour, official figures showed.
