Jordanian-Turkish business forum opens in Amman
A Jordanian-Turkish business forum kicked off in the Jordanian capital Amman on Dec. 10.
Organized by the Jordanian Businessmen Association (JBA), the event is attended by 20 Turkish businessmen from different sectors.
“Historic relations between Jordan and Turkey are based on friendship and mutual interests,” JBA chairman Hamdi al-Tabaa said.
He said the business climate in Jordan has lured Turkish investments in different sectors.
“The trade exchange balance, however, is still in Turkey’s favor in spite of the 2011 free trade agreement between the two countries and the abolishing of customs tariffs and entry visas,” he added.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Turkish Ambassador to Jordan Murat Karagöz said both Turkey and Jordan will mark the 70th anniversary of their diplomatic relations next year.
“The volume of trade exchange was over $1 billion in 2014,” he said.
