AMMONNEWS - Jordanian Tourism and Antiquities Minister Lina Mazhar Annab considered as "excellent" Egyptian-Jordanian relations in the tourism sector.

In statements to MENA on Tuesday on the sidelines of the first regional conference on "Tourism in the Middle East and North Africa: Competitiveness for Sustainable Growth", the minister said that Egypt and Jordan are working together to promote tourism in Europe and other world countries.

Annab added that she held contacts with Egyptian Tourism Minister Yehia Rashid to boost cooperation in the tourism field, including religious, non-religious and adventure tourism, in the two countries.

The conference, which kicked off on Monday under the patronage of Jordanian Prime Minister Hani Mulki, is part of the activities of the 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism to reflect the Global Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

The two-day conference includes the signing of the "Private Sector Commitment to the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism — within the framework of the corporate social responsibility" agreement, between the World Tourism Organization (WTO) and seven global companies, in addition to Jordanian national tourism associations.
