[10/5/2020 3:35:58 PM]

AMMONNEWS - Head of the Jordan Chamber of Commerce Nael Kabariti on Monday said that the Jordanian private sector is looking forward for integrated and continuously-evolving economic relations with Syria.

During a meeting Sunday evening with the Syrian Ambassador Shafiq Dayoub, Kabariti said that the private sector believes in the need to work as one to achieve the aspired results for a promising future of bilateral economic relations.

According to a press release by the Chamber on Monday, Kabariti also called for increasing efforts to overcome the obstacles facing bilateral trade exchange in the fallout of the COVID-19 crisis that affected the flow of commercial goods between the two countries, stressing the need for an agreement to open borders and create a list of exchanged goods.

On the resumption of trade with Syria, he indicated that this represents a common interest for the economies of the two countries, noting that Syria's crossings and ports are an important trade lifeline for the Kingdom to the European market and many surrounding countries, just as Jordan represents a gateway for Syrian products and goods to safely cross to the markets of neighboring countries.

Kabariti called for drawing up a "road map" for economic relationship based on the exchange of commercial benefits, pointing out that Jordanian businessmen are committed to strong commercial and investment partnerships with their Syrian counterparts, putting common interests at the forefront of priorities.

For his part, the envoy underlined the depth of economic bilateral relations, which are boosted by the "brotherly relations," and the Jordanian side's commitment to strengthening them, especially after the visit of the Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply to Damascus.
