Ammon News - The American Chamber of Commerce in Jordan (AmCham-Jordan) discussed the mechanisms to increase volume of Jordanian exports to the United States and the logistical difficulties in this regard, in light of the current high sea freight costs globally and the lack of express courier companies operating to and from Aqaba port.

An AmCham statement issued Wednesday, the session comes within a series of dialogues, chaired by the chamber's president, Samer Judeh, representatives of Jordan's private sector and US embassy.

The participants agreed that the port of Aqaba would be the "key" option for serving exports and imports to Jordan, in light of estimates on a rise of the Kingdom's exports volume to the United States in the coming years, the statement said.

"Delay in working as a team will not be in the interest of Jordanian exports, which would lose their competitive value, if Jordanian government didn't take a decision, in collaboration with Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) and Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC), to cooperate with global shipping companies," the participants warned.
