AMMONNEWS - China sees great potential in boosting cooperation with Jordan in various areas as the bilateral political ties are solid and strategic, Chinese Ambassador to Jordan Pan Weifang has said.

In a speech at the Arab Thought Forum held on Sunday, Pan highlighted China's rising role in global affairs, citing that China has become the world's second largest economy.

The ambassador said that China has great potential in enhancing cooperation with Jordan through providing funds and investment.

He said China is keen on increasing investment in Jordan, referring to several projects by Chinese investors in the Kingdom in the field of textile, LED lights and other areas.

The envoy stressed that energy cooperation was another successful example of the collaboration between the two sides, noting that China has provided 1.6 billion U.S. dollars to finance Jordan's largest oil shale power plant with a total capacity of 470 megawatts.

Pan added that under the Belt and Road Initiative that aims to connect China with the world, several infrastructure projects including rail lines are to be built in Jordan with China's help.

"Jordan and China have several areas for increased cooperation, and we expect more in the future," he said.
