The summit, which was held under the auspices of Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati, aims to promote and develop trade and agricultural exchange and overcome obstacles related to inter-state agricultural and veterinary quarantine procedures, as well as transportation and transit measures in place.

During the inaugural ceremony, Hneifat pointed to the "protracted" challenges and crises facing the region, which led to a clear disruption in cooperation.

Hneifat also stressed the need to build bridges of trust and resume cooperation in dealing with crises to overcome climate change impacts and achieve food security by collaborating on the supply chain channels, which would deliver food and positively impact the agricultural sector in the Arab countries.

The minister referred to Jordan's expertise in creating an "effective" partnership with Palestine, which embodies support needed by the Palestinian and Jordanian farmers, adding that a Jordanian-Palestinian company was established to market agricultural products.

In this regard, he pointed to Jordan's resolve to overcome challenges facing this partnership's success, hoping to expand the work base to include neighboring Arab countries.
