Ammon News - U.S. Ambassador to Jordan Henry T. Wooster hosted an official reception on July 6 in recognition of the U.S. Independence Day. The event at the Ambassador’s official residence marked the first large external event hosted by the U.S. Embassy in the two years since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020.

In his welcoming remarks, the Ambassador praised the U.S.-Jordanian relationship as a testament to the connections between Jordan and the United States and observed that “our partnership is characterized by trust, respect, and a shared outlook. Together, we have created jobs, opportunities, and security for our people. Together, we will find solutions to the challenges Jordan faces in water shortages and with its economy.”

Ambassador Wooster used the occasion, which marks 246 years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, to highlight the importance of including all citizens, especially women. Ambassador Wooster said, “As the American experience has demonstrated, when all people, especially women, have an opportunity to participate in the work of the nation, in the public or private sectors, the nation benefits. Our wealth grows in a literal sense, and our society matures in its development. It is in the national interest of any country to encourage women to engage in its political, social, and economic spheres.”
