The two countries are connected through historical relations, which are the base of trade exchange development, and several cooperation agreements in various spheres, he added.

For his part, Deputy Chairman of Alat, Ismayil S. Manafov, said the authority witnessed significant success in recent years and attracted investments in various fields, pointing to its strategic location next to Baku's port.

The JFDZG's Chairman Khalaf Hmeisat noted the group's part in meeting the increasing demand for investment in free and development zones, attracting investment, and generating job opportunities for Jordanians.
